Note: The Eskimos have a very complicated system for cutting up seals depending on the number of people hunting, their ages, their status, their experience and their sex. Certain parts of the seal are allotted to each person on the hunt, and this print shows the traditional divisions of the seal when cutting it up. From - Eskimo Graphic Art, 1959 Cape Dorset catalogue, Background on prints.
