Note: “Lucy Qinnuayuak is best known for her fanciful renditions of birds. This print, created more than twenty years into her artistic career, shows a group of bird spirits manning a boat complete with its own sovereign flag. Highlighting the important role that they play in Inuit life both culturally and spiritually, birds are often portrayed with human-like characteristics.”
