‘Aivilaaq (Small Walrus)’ by Sheojuk Etidlooie – Inuit Art – Cape Dorset 1998 print collection by Dorset Fine Arts, presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.
Condition: No condition noted.
Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Sheojuk contributed with 12 of 28 prints in the Cape Dorset 1998 print collection and this is one of them, number 27. As usual, Sheojuk uses simple abstract forms to depict a small walrus swimming up probably to take air. I think this carries some humor in that both tusks are on one side of the mouth.
