LUKE ANGUHADLUQ (1895-1982), ᓗᐅᒃ ᐊᒐᓴᓗ, E2-294, BAKER LAKE / QAMANI’TUAQ
UNTITLED (CARIBOU HUNT)

coloured pencil drawing, signed in syllabics, framed, sight

17 x 23 in — 43.2 x 58.4 cm

Note:
"The uniqueness of Anguhadluq's drawings stems from his use of multiple perspectives, a formal device most simply applied in his animal imagery. He perceives them from different positions in space through successive moments of time. He combines these perceptions - an aerial view with a profile of the torso - causing a sense of transition and duration to arise"
