Notes from DaVic Gallery: One of Pitsiulak’s favourite subjects is Sedna, the sea-goddess. Sedna, Pitsiulak explained, helped sea mammals in trouble and helped feed people. But Pitsiulak created “Edna,” Sedna’s counterpart, who does almost everything better than Sedna. “When someone starts to drown, Edna would rescue the person and bring them back to life. Or if someone saw Edna out on the beach, the person who helps Edna back to the ocean would receive good hunting.” — By Thomas Rohner, Nunatsiaq News, October 2014.
