This charming little ivory pendant of a Face possibly by Nicholas Kringayark (b. 1921) is a bit of a puzzle. The carving comes with an Inuit label stating it is by N.K. from Repulse Bay and the numbers 476 3. We do believe the pendant was originally purchased around 1973.

Due to the CITES rules with regard to ivory, this pendant can only be sold within Canada
