Circle of Life
‘Circle of Life’ by Qavavau Manumie (Kavavaow Mannomee) – Inuit Art from Cape Dorset 2019 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. Also, 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: Beautiful drawing by Qavavau Manumie with hunters teaching the young that life is about respect and reciprocity. Respect animals and they will respect and provide when needed in return. Good respectful relationship with whales will preserve both continued survival. Taboos and cultural behaviors are built around this belief.
