Individually printed by the hand silkscreen method on parchment paper measuring 9″ x 6″. The card is hand inscribed with the title and artist’s name and is also red stamped with Enook Manomie’s own original mark of authenticity. Manomie was commissioned to design this, and other cards, that depicted his native culture. Although Manomie has long been recognized as one of Canada’s foremost Inuit soapstone carvers, this is one of his first graphics ever published.

Coming from a long heritage of famous soapstone carvers, his pieces have been exhibited in major galleries and museums throughout Canada and the world. Manomie originally came from Cape Dorset immigrating to Frobisher Bay in 1958. Manomie passed away in 2006 at the age of 65. His work can be found in the Art Bank in Ottawa, University of Alberta, McMaster University, National Gallery of Canada and the Inuit Cultural Institute.
