Notes from DaVic Gallery:   Ohotoq Mikkigak, an elder in chronological age but still a youngster in spirit, delights us once again with six new images of wit and whimsy. In his charming Nocturnal Bandits two mischievous bird-men skulk away in the night with their booty. Their ruse is made all the more effective by our inability to truly discern whether these are birds disguised as men or men disguised as birds.

—from the foreword by Leslie Boyd Ryan and John Westren

Seems like some families are losing their food overnight.  People might talk of some ravens or gulls for the sounds they make but how is it possible they leave human footprints behind?
