Description

‘Latchaolassie’s Birds’ by Saimaiyu Akesuk – Inuit Art – Cape Dorset 2013 print collection by Dorset Fine Arts, presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.

Condition:          No condition to be noted.

Description by Artist:     ” When I went down to the litho shop to sell my first drawing, I was very nervous wondering whether they would buy it or not. My first drawing was an image of my late grandfather’s (Latchaolassie) carving of a bird. I was so proud to get paid for that drawing and it inspired me to do more drawings.” – Saimaiyu Akesuk.

Notes from DaVic Gallery:   It is often that Saimaiyu’s animals represent something different than the animal drawn.  In this case, Latchaolassie is her grandfather and the bird is one of his bird carvings.
