Notes from DaVic Gallery:   5 colors are used to depict this moment when the first white tourist man (Qallunaat) the Arctic community, excitedly motioning a local woman to stand still next to an Inuksuk for his picture.  Moments like this captured by artists that did live the Old Ways before Inuit moved to settlements by 1950 may appear irrelevant to most viewers, but they have great significance to the current social and economic ways how Inuit live today.
