AKA: The Sea Bird's Inua

Hand pulled by the artist on an Ettan etching press from the original endgrain block at Sitka, Alaska, April, 1994.

Editor's note: for a nearly identical image but with a very different legend attached to it, see Bird Woman.

The Eskimo people believe that everything has an inuau (inua), a spirit, which can take human form and is always with the animal, bird, rock, mountain or other animate or inanimate object. This shows a sea bird's inuau.

Original price: $60.00
