Wall hanging

Members of an Inuit art co-op in Nunavik (northern Quebec) made this akinnamituaq. The use of appliqué for such hangings is attributed to Mina Napartuk, who led a local workshop on this technique in 1975. This akinnamituaq is unusual in that it does not bear a signature identifying its maker.
