Inuit myths, stories and legends have always inspired Ningeokuluk Teevee. Here she gives us the Legend of Qalupalik, a human-like sea creature who stalks the beach during the dangerous spring break up of the ice, looking for wayward children who have wandered too close to the shore. If she catches you, she will put you in her amoutik and adopt you as her own.

“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.”
