NAPATCHIE POOTOOGOOK (1938-2002), ᓇᐸᓯ ᐳᑐᒍ, E7-1104, CAPE DORSET / KINNGAIT
BIRD SPIRITS

stonecut, 1960, 22/50, framed, sight

17 x 20.5 in — 43.2 x 52.1 cm

Note:
Napatchie connects the animal with the spirit world in this somewhat enigmatic work. There is a sense of joy and transcendence to this image, in part because of its unstructured composition. Reminiscent in theme and style to Tudlik’s 1959 masterpiece Bird Dream Forewarning Blizzard, Bird Spirits was printed in a similar technique. Colours can vary in both prints.

Estimate: $1,500—2,000
