Note: “Henry Moore’s sculptures are highly thought out and sophisticated works. Tiktak’s works, at their best as sophisticated as Moore’s, appear to be deeply personal and emotional statements combined with innate understanding and awareness of possibilities of form. A theme particularly suited to Tiktak’s sensibility was the mother and child.” Pure Vision: The Keetwatin Spirit, Norman Zepp, Norman MacKenizie Art Gallery, 1986, pg. 42
