COMMENTS

This sculpture spans the decade of the 1950s and is typical of work created at this time. Labelled Eastern Arctic as no records were kept and it is hard to establish the exact area where they were made. For the same reason we do not often know the name of the artists, which in no way diminishes the power and monumentality of the works.

Standing Woman, despite her static pose, is very compelling. The details of the hands and inset face are quite typical of the time.

Nunavut:
Nunavut is the largest of the regions in the Canadian Arctic and the first to achieve self-government. Stretching from Baffin Island across the Central Arctic, Nunavut incorporates many different local traditional cultures. There are three distinct regions within Nunavut allof which are re ected in the Nickolds collection.
