Note: “The agony of the dying caribou conveyed with intensity and feeling of prehistoric cave painting. The artist employs very sophisticated graphic renderings, particularly in the head of the animal; the print is almost expressionistic in its depiction of the caribou’s final struggles.” from Furneaux, Patrick and Leo Rosshandler, Ernst Roch, ed., Art of the Eskimo: Prints, Signum Press, 1974, pp. 44-5; See also The Inuit Print, exh. cat., from the National Museum of Man (Ottawa, ON), 1977, p. 75, pl. 23
