‘Tundra Hawk’ by Eegyvudluk Ragee (AKA Egevadluq Ragee) – Inuit Art – Cape Dorset 1969 print collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.
Condition: Right edge needs flattening.
Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: yet another rare, interesting and certainly gorgeous print design by Eegyvudluk, a.k.a Egevadluq of a deceivingly friendly looking hawk. Just look at its talons. For the hanging position of its talons 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
