‘Hunter’s Vision’ by Innukjuakju Pudlat – Inuit Art – Cape Dorset 1965 print collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.
Condition: Good Condition. This print has been professionally restored for safe removal from mat work from previous framing, including treatment for tape adhesive residues, and for overall handling marks. Original print is catalogued with measurement of 17″ x 24 1/2″ and it’s visible that the print has been slightly trimmed at the edges. Fading tone in bear seems intended compared with other copies of the same edition. This copy shows some stains that appear to be from the pull of the print rather than damage.
Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: This print is a rare and beautiful find for the Inuit Art enthusiast. Innukjuakju Pudlat gives us an action packed design in this print with hunters and preys. Two hunters luck brings them to a walrus, a seal and her pup, and a polar bear. Everything they need for their families. Food, blubber, and fur. There is a very interesting seventh element with two objects in this vision of the hunter, a human-fish creature that could be Sedna and interestingly a raven sitting or eating on her?
