About artist/note:

“Again the artist has used the encircling stone contour as a base for one hunter and the images of the caribou, and by skilful [sic] stone-cutting creates the effect of vast spaces and a feeling of distance within the scene.”
-Furneaux, Patrick and Leo Rosshandler, Ernst Roch, ed., Art of the Eskimo: Prints, Signum Press, 1974, pp. 152-3
