Additional Images

This print was one of several experimental works created between 1957 and 1958, before the first catalogued collection in 1959. These earlier prints were made with the assistance of James Houston, who had been working with the south Baffin Inuit on the development and marketing of sculpture since 1951. These experiments led to the creation of a graphic arts program that, in 2009, celebrated 50 years of successful production.
