Description

‘Aulajijakka (Things I Remember) – Cutting a Bear’  by Kananginak Pootoogook – Inuit Art – Cape Dorset 2011 print collection by Dorset Fine Arts, presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.

Condition:          No condition noted.

Description by Artist:     No description by the artist found.

Notes from DaVic Gallery:   Fortunate outcome in this story where the ending could’ve been tragic for Kananginak’s family.  Polar bears are the most feared of the hunters and hunters can turn easily into hunted.

The series “Aulajijakka” (Things I Remember) by Kananginak Pootoogook are all signed posthumously by the artist’s son, Johnny Pootoogook.
