Elizabeth Nutaraluk Aulatjut, ᐃᓕᓴᐸ ᓄᑕᕋᓗ

WOMAN WITH BRAIDED HAIR


ELIZABETH NUTARALUK AULATJUT (1914-1998), ᐃᓕᓴᐸ ᓄᑕᕋᓗ, E1-445, ESKIMO POINT / ARVIAT
WOMAN WITH BRAIDED HAIR

stone, signed in syllabics

4.75 x 3 x 1.75 in — 12.1 x 7.6 x 4.4 cm

Note:
Displaying the classic aesthetic of Arviat, Nutaraluk’s small seated woman’s most defining feature is her long plaited hair. With a decidedly strong profile, the woman’s face dominates the truncated body of the work. It is artistic decisions like this that elevate a simple figure to that of a small wonder.

Estimate: $300—500
