Literature:
George Swinton, Eskimo Point/Arviat, Winnipeg Art Gallery, 1982, page 13-14.

Note:
George Swinton described Pangnark’s works as “carved elegantly, pure and pristine in shape - many of them women with their hoods extended in the blowing wind, or their hands stretched out, ... with a rare feeling of abstraction and for the sheer beauty of curved and hard edged shapes. He couldn’t put any of these thoughts into words but he did what counts most: he made them into sculptures. These were more than mere objects for him; they were sensuous renderings of his sensibility for pure form, with a vague hint of subject matter without which the form had very little conscious meaning for him.”

Estimate: $600—900
