Description

Whale Sounding‘ by Tim Pitsiulak – Inuit Art from Cape Dorset 2012 hand drawing collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts

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:  Beluga whale dressed in amauti.  In the spirit of animalism and shamanistic beliefs where humans transform into animals and animals into humans or other animals, we see a beluga being personified as a woman whale wearing amauti.
