Untitled ‘Between Worlds’ by Eegyvudluk Ragee — Inuit Art from Cape Dorset 1979 original hand drawing collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.
Condition: Some minor stains visible throughout the paper caused by the artist while drawing. Minor paper handling marks throughout that are mostly visible when seen at angle to light. This is common in original drawings as Inuit artists would commonly draw at home.
Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Very intriguing and interesting drawing that I must admit I was unable to properly interpret. I subtitled this drawing ‘Between Worlds’ because we can see shamanistic transformation of the two top birds with fishtail. We have two humans that could well be shamans and a hawk in the middle of the composition with what appears to be goose feet.
As with all other drawings by the same artist, we see that the artist is very careful in maintaining a well-balanced composition with same number of same coloured birds as well as vegetation and people on each left and right sides of the drawing.
