The Collection of Dr. Francis Sparshott, 1979


Rankin Inlet / Kangirlliniq, Winnipeg Art Gallery, 1981, exh. cat., page 32, pl. 28, illustrated on page 73


Acquired from the Isaacs Innuit Gallery exhibition, Rankin Inlet Ceramics, 1964-1972: A Fleeting Phenomenon (1979). A similar work by Kukshout illustrated in the 1981 Winnipeg Art Gallery, Rankin Inlet exhibition catalogue is aptly described by Bernadette Driscoll, “Through a streaking chartreuse glaze, caribou and musk oxen are carved in high relief, and seem on the verge of rising to their feet.”
