‘Rutting Caribou’ by Pitseolak Niviaqsi – Inuit Art – Cape Dorset 2015 print collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.
Condition: No condition to be noted.
Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: The rut is a phase of the caribou’s annual life cycle, late in the Fall, when the big bulls spar with one another for the privilege of mating with the cows. Dueling and chasing preoccupy the bulls to the point of exhaustion, rendering them easy prey for wolves and bears that continue to shadow the migration. In this beautiful print we see two apparently young male bulls ready to spar. Where is the beautiful cow they are fighting for though?
