Notes from DaVic Gallery:   A caribou drinking water near an Inukshuk.  This must be near their summering grounds as we see unfrozen water and grounds clear of snow. Inukshuk is used to detour and trap caribou for hunting so for a hunter this is a beautiful sight.  This design is a clear reminder that we all depend on water for living. Animals, humans, plants, all that breaths.  It is important to notice how William Noah stresses this point by using the same colours and patterns used in the water also in the body of the caribou.
