PEACEFUL WOMAN


JOHN PANGNARK (1920-1980), E1-104, ESKIMO POINT / ARVIAT
PEACEFUL WOMAN

stone, signed in syllabics, c. 1975

5" x 3" x 5.5" — 12.7 x 7.6 x 14 cm.

Provenance:
From The Collection of Stanley and Jean Zazelenchuk

Literature:
Norman Zepp, Subtle Form and Sensitive Line: The Sculpture of Arviat, Inuit Art Quarterly, Spring 2017, page 30

Note:
“...the most overt indications of subject matter are angular yet flowing appendages and simplified visages. Humanness is often indicated merely by a small, finely incised face (always on an upward facing plane) and two slight notches on the sides to denote arms; Pangnark seemed to know instinctively that an otherwise undifferentiated mass needs precisely that relief.”

Estimate: $1,500—2,000
