Malaya Akulukjuk, Sunrise at Tanaqaaq, 9/20, 1988-89
Wool, 40 1/2 x 54 in. (102.9 x 137.2 cm)
Malaya Akulukjuk was the premier designer of Pangnirtung tapestries. This marvelous tapestry has a glowing sunrise sky above hills populated with ptarmigan and topped with inukshuks. Like all Pangnirtung tapestries, it is meticulously finished; the back is almost indistinguishable from the front. Another weaving of this design hung in the Canadian Houses of Parliament in Ottawa.
