About artist/note:

This print is part of the “Cape Dorset” or “Northern Edition” series. At outset, these prints were not for sale outside of Kingnait and do not appear in the annual graphics catalogue.

In this image pairs engage in different games to test strength. Such as ear tugging, which uses a piece of soft leather around the contestant's ears; arm wrestling; and the tugging game, the objective of which is to pull your opponent off the ground.
