About artist/note:

“Parr was an especially prolific artist, filling sketchbooks with his naive forms of people and animals. Here the rock-like form of the central walrus expresses its great weight. Parr’s textured black pencil or wax crayon translates well into the medium of the stonecut print.”
The Inuit Print, exh. cat., from the National Museum of Man, Ottawa, ON, 1977, p. 76, pl. 24
