A Frightened Spirit
‘A Frightened Spirit’ by Janet Kigusiuq – Inuit Art from Baker Lake 1973 print collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts
Condition: Very Good Condition – professionally restored for removal of old tape hinges, cleaning of iron inclusion, smoothing of paper abrasion. Successful restoration work resulting in a a beautiful clean and smooth paper with strong image.
Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: It is said dogs are sensitive to shamans and to presence of spirits. Two dogs react violently to the presence of a spirit detected in another dog. This is a personal favorite for the strong mythical energy it represents and how it is interpreted. The Shaman spirit helper may well be dog that the other two dogs are attacking. Interesting the selection and brilliancy of colours.
The blank sheet of letter-size (8.5” x 11”) paper covering part of the image in the last picture is for size reference.
