Description

 Untitled ‘Three Realms’ by Eegyvudluk Ragee —  Inuit Art from Cape Dorset 1979 original hand drawing collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.

Condition:          Some minor stains visible throughout the paper caused by the artist while drawing.    Minor paper handling marks throughout that are mostly visible when seen at angle to light. This is common in original drawings as Inuit artists would commonly draw at home.

Description by Artist:     No description by artist found.

Notes from DaVic Gallery:   mystic, captivating and intriguing composition where Eegyvudluk lightly breaks her consistent balance with one bird on the left appears to be out of place being of different colour and loading the left side of the composition.  Mysteriously two fish appear to be swimming down towards the birds or it could perhaps indicate birds standing on land near the water where fish abound.  The most intriguing element of this drawing is the two birds top middle where human hands stretch out in place of their right and left wings respectively indicating shamanistic transformation.  Interconnectedness, interdependence of all living creatures.
