A fine early Inuit carving by famed sculptor John Pangnark sculpture depicting a spirit face complete with original Eskimo Art tag. Beautiful condition. Carved from a beautiful deep dark blue black stone.
John Pangnark (1920–1980) was an Inuit sculptor and native of Arviat, Northwest Territories (now Nunavut). His work is notable for its frequent use of geometric abstraction and its nearly exclusive focus on the human figure. His work is in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada and many important museum collections.
