Peter Aliknak (1928 – 1998)
Holman, North West Territories, Canada
Peter started as a carver and started working in graphics in the 1960s. His works often depict aspects of traditional life, such as shown in “Eating Dry Fish,” which we think is his work despite the caption that names his sister, Agnes Nanogak, as the artist. The crossed sticks, the drying fish and the incised details of the man strongly suggest that this is Aliknak’s work.
