Notes from DaVic Gallery: Lucy Qinnuayuak was prolific and drew many different subjects, but surely it is for her whimsical birds that she is best remembered. Three happy looking birds hug and get together for a photo, or so it looks like. Only the feet of the two birds in front are seen touching the ground while the bird behind might be floating. All three seem to smile and looking at the viewer. Nine feathers seem to surround the trio and each feather displays five to six faces of birds tattooed to their feathers.
