About artist/note:

In 1957 until late 1958, using very limited materials, the members of the Cape Dorset crafts shop created an uncatalogued, experimental collection of roughly twenty prints. In December 1958, thirteen images from this experimental collection were offered for sale at the Hudson Bay Company department store in Winnipeg, MB.
