Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: “Old Kiakshuk remembers the days of bow and arrow, the sealskin boat, and the drum dance. He has grown old and lives in his reminiscences of caribou hunts on foot, of stone traps for catching geese, and the stories of his native land on the east coast of Hudson Bay. He knows the days before the rifle when one had to crawl up to a seal on the ice on only a harpoon, when the seals were less cautious about the dangers, whereas now he is alert and quick to disappear into the waters. The seal fears the sight of man, knowing his threat…” – Cape Dorset 1964 print collection catalog
