Note: “Mikpigak, like her ancestors, cuts directly into the stone without a preparatory drawing. Here she tells of the Eskimos’ constant search for the animals that provide their sustenance. In turn, the hunters are hunted by a ferocious bear.” Literature: Arts of the Eskimo: Prints, Signum Press, Montreal, 1974, p. 154-5
