Inuit Woven Wall Hanging

Inuit Woven Wall Hanging “Polar Bear Attack” Made by Agness Iqqugaqtuq (1930-2006) – Pelly Bay 20″x 23″ Good Condition.

I came across these images quite by accident online the other day. The items are listed for auction on the Live Auctioneers website.

I’ve not been able to locate any other information about these items other than that which is listed in the captions above. Both Inuit wall hangings are fascinating examples of outsider art from the North American Arctic regions though.
