Notes from DaVic Gallery:   This interesting and captivating print design by Eegyvudluk Ragee was first printed in 1969 yet remained archived until released in 2006 when Galerie D’Art Vincent acquired the full edition.  Some copies where sold during this time when Galerie D’Art Vincent returned the remaining edition back to Dorset Fine Arts.  At long last, since 1969, this certainly gorgeous print design is made available to the public with DFA’s 2020 print release, “From the Archives”.   For the hanging position of the talons of this deceivingly friendly looking hawk and the low flapping of its wings, this hawk could be either landing or flying off.  Interestingly, the lines over its head could be mistaken by the spread flapping wing in high position, but we see that both its wings are in low position.  So I wonder what those lines could depict.  Reminds me of Kenojuak Ashevak’s birds and owls.

The “eye” atop syllabic signature denotes female Eegyvudluk on 1961, 1962 prints
