Sometimes the stories are cautionary. “The Owl and the Boy” is a recent and true story of children’s playtime interrupted by a great snowy owl that swooped down and picked up a small boy. Terrified, the children all ran home and the story is still told to warn of unforeseen dangers and playing too far from home.
From the foreword by Leslie Boyd Ryan, Cape Dorset Print Collection, 2008
“A couple of years ago I made Shaman Revealed, a drawing that was based on the Kiviuq legend of a woman turning into a fox. I wanted to show how people could change from one thing to another but still be the same person. A zipper came to mind and I thought, that’s a really nice idea, so I used the zipper to show how they change.”
