"Art from the Arctic: Inuit Prints and Sculpture" (11/20/09-2/14/10) exhibition label text:

Like many Inuit artists, Thomassieapik used his experience as a hunter to inform his work. Watching the animals, studying their habits and movement helped the Inuit secure food but it also allowed them to render animals in stone with surprising accuracy.
