Note: Sagiatuk was a printmaker for the West Baffin Eskimo Co-op in Cape Dorset. This charming little piece demonstrates the carving skill it takes to recreate a stunning stonecut print. The same finely detailed lineation is evident in the wings, tail feathers and facial features. Sagiatuk was married to graphic artist Kakulu Sagiatuk.
