Description


‘Cosmic Owl’ by Ningeokuluk Teevee – Inuit Art – Cape Dorset 2021 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:  I can only imagine the amount of work needed to create the original drawing for this deceivingly simple composition.  At close look, the background or the space that represents the cosmos it’s drawn in black leaving individually kept circles of white space to represent the stars.  This alone must have required much much work.  Now we have this little arctic owl floating in space formless due to the lack of gravity. No spacesuit and no oxygen mask required for this space traveler that occupies nearly the entire area of the paper.

The blank sheet of letter-size (8.5” x 11”) paper covering part of the image in the last picture is for size reference.
