JESSIE OONARK, O.C., R.C.A. (1906-1985)
This image appears in Arts of the Eskimo: Prints, Signum Press, Montreal, 1974, page 235.
The Inuit Print, National Museum of Man (Ottawa, ON), 1977, exh. cat., p. 222.
“In order to achieve a monumental effect, Oonark blends two scenes - the seated man and the parading birds - into one image. All is rendered in a monochrome silhouette, enlivened by coloured lines so placed as to give an impression of repose for the man and movement for the birds.”
