Notes from DaVic Gallery: Luke Anguhadluq is also known by Anguhalluq, Angosaglo, or Anglosaglo. This print is signed by Anguhadluq by his alternative name Angosaglo and the printer Amarook.
This print is based on one of Anguhadluq’s earliest drawings. As is sometimes common in Inuit art, there was a miscommunication regarding the subject. It turns out that far from depicting a child, this image represents a giant, an “almost human” in Anguhadluq’s own words (see Cynthia Waye Cook, From the Centre: The Drawings of Luke Anguhadluq, AGO, 1993, p. 17 and fig. 1). We are confronting a lumbering Goliath rather than a toddling youngster.
