Inscribed, numbered, and dated, in graphite, lower left to right: Fishing 34/50 1973 Anguhadluq, Tullik; Baker Lake chop [yellow bow and arrow]; Reverse, in graphite, lower left: 17-74.
In the image above, Luke Anguhadluq makes skillful use of negative space to illustrate an Inuit technique of building a saputi, or stone weir in a river. A group of individuals have built a saputi using a circle of stones to divert fish into a small pond where they use kakivat, or three-pronged spears, to capture the fish. In the image below, Anguhadluq depicts two men using bows and arrows to hunt caribou. Like Jessie Oonark in her image of this subject on the opposite wall, Anguhadluq uses the same colors in his depictions of both the hunters and the caribou, demonstrating a connection between the human and nonhuman beings.
