Reference
It has come to our attention that this piece might not be by John Tiktak. The M.P. Hess Collection documententation, which includes a photograph of this carving, states it was done by Tiktak and is signed. However, we are unable to find any signature. It has been suggested that this piece is by John Kavik [1897-1993].

Provenance
purchased from Canadian Arctic Producers, Ottawa [1972]; from the Estate of Dr. Margaret [Marmie] Perkins Hess, see some additional information at Canadian Museum of History Announces Major Bequest of Inuit Art from the late Dr. Margaret Hess
