Description

Tattooed Whale‘ by Tim Pitsiulak — Cape Dorset Inuit Art from Dorset Fine Arts 2016 original hand drawing collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.

This product is ** SOLD ** 

Condition:          No condition to be noted.

Description:       Pitsiulak, who lived in Cape Dorset, said that he knew he wanted to draw whales because he always sees the animals, and “no one knows that much about them.”  “I hunt back home and seeing them when I go boating, [they’re] just that much more beautiful. They’re huge and they’re very powerful,” he said.

Notes from DaVic Gallery:  Humpback whale dressed apparently with amauti and tattoos that are also exclusive for women.  In this reference, this could represent Sedna the goddess of the sea.
