SANAAQ TARKIRK (1938-), Sugluk / Salluit
WOMAN WITH BRAIDS
inscribed with disc number, c. 1956
10.5" x 3.5" x 4.5" — 26.7 x 8.9 x 11.4 cm.
This work is a fine example of the preferred content and regional style. Here, a single figure stands her hands clasped to create a sculpture that is self-contained and autonomous. Her coiffure is typical of the region, her center parted hair is rendered with careful incising which extends down her back in two broad braids.
