Waddington's Auction House Biography and Notes

Inuit women have had a long tradition of preparing and sewing skins for garments. These skills have been kept alive through the creativity of textile art. Caroline Napartuk, Mina Napartuk, Malaya Crow and Annie Niviaxie often collaborated on these large scale works. There are some particularly wonderful details on this wall hanging, including the expressive human faces, the pink stitched tongues of the dogs, bears and foxes and a very detailed interior camp scene.
