Description by Artist:     Story about a Giant Dwarf and his adopted son.

Notes from DaVic Gallery:   “Kigutik Malruk” (Giant Dwarf and his Adopted Son) – There was once a human who was the foster son of some dwarfs. Once they were out breathing-hole hunting, and while doing so they began to hunt a bear. Their dogs set out after the bear, caught up with it and held it at bay. When the dwarfs came up with the bear the foster son saw that it was a little lemming, and he killed it by simply putting his foot on it; and as it was dying it snapped at his foot. Now the dwarfs told the human to go home first, and they cut it up while he went home in advance; but when the dwarfs came home it was a real bear they had with them. They had turned the little lemming into a big bear.
