Provenance: Acquired directly from the artist by the consignor during a fishing trip to Povungnituk/Puvirnituq in 1970.

Note: For a similar work, see Waddington’s November 2008 auction catalogue, lot 165. Unlike Joe’s typical depiction of a static hunter ensconced by his hunting gear, this figure is taking aim with his bow and arrow in a crouched position.
