This piece is relatively recent and may represent an inua or spirit/soul of a bear in human form. A label on the bottom of the piece links it to Canadian Arctic Producers (CAP), a government-initiated cooperative established in 1965 to market the work of the aboriginal people of northern Canada. [Gallery label text, 2009]
Mrs. Harmar Brereton, Canandaigua, New York; her gift to the Gallery in 1983
