Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: It was common practice that Inuit hunters would hunt caribou on their migration path when crossing river. This made them easier target to catch while on the water. In this print we see 3 muskox crossing the river instead while 36 dogs give chase or cross the river with them too. Six hunters give chase, perhaps on their kayaks or waiting for them at shore while the dogs chase them there. Beautiful, action packed design.
Note that title, edition # and name are written on the back of the print.
