This lovely image based on an early drawing by Pitseolak was not included in the annual Cape Dorset catalogue, but interestingly it was released into the European market for sale there. In style it is reminiscent of some of the delightful and quirky engravings made by Pitseolak in the early 1960s; for comparison, images of these are more readily accessible than those of the artist’s early drawings.
