Notes from DaVic Gallery:   “Courting Birds” – A near abstract interpretation of bird-people in courtship.  Semi-human bodies with semi-bird heads and beaks.  One larger than the other hinting male from female bird-man and bird-woman.  Bird people play an important role in different myths and legends such as that of Sedna, the Goddess of the Sea, Kiviuq, and Raven-man the creator of the world and light.

“Courting Birds, by Saimaiyu Akesuk, depicts the artist and her good friend. “It’s that look we give each other when we want to say something, but it comes out as a laugh instead,” Akesuk explained.”
