Shuvinai Ashoona has used the symbol of the egg in many of her original drawings over the years. In Sea Shell, the egg shell becomes the umiak, fragile yet functional, transporting a group of happy-looking people to their next destination — perhaps another world.

“When I start to draw I remember things that I have experienced or seen. Although I do not attempt to recreate these images exactly, that is what might happen. Sometimes they come out more realistically but sometimes they turn out completely different. That is what happens when I draw.”
