Provenance: Private Collection, California, U.S.A.

Note: This is arguably Pitaloosie’s most important work. She has been a constant participant in the annual Cape Dorset print collections since 1968. Her and her (now deceased) husband Pauta Saila were somewhat of an Inuit art power couple, considering their immense contribution to Canadian art.
