Huting Walrus with a Harpoon
‘Huting Walrus with a Harpoon’ by May Lonsdale – Inuit Art – Pangnirtung 2018 print collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.
Condition: No condition noted.
Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Near the floe edge a large walrus is swimming making a great opportunity for the hunter to catch it and bring it to the village. This walrus will bring much valuable resources for food, tools, clothing, and heat. However, this will not be easy because though clumsy on land, on water walrus are very fast and flexible and a large walrus, as this one appears to be, can weigh as much a 4000 lbs. Bringing it to land will be a very difficult, arduous and dangerous task for this hunter.
