This Fishing Composition by Bessie Crow only came to light in 2017 but was most probably carved somewhere around 1997. Bessie was  born in 1940 and lived  in  Sanikiluaq

I don’t know much about Bessie, except that this is an exceptionally large piece by Bessie who is more known for smaller bird carvings such as geese, ptarmigans, etc. I also seem to recall a story from around 2004 that Bessie had to give up carving by then because she lost her eyesight.

This great Fishing Composition by Bessie Crow about a family on a fishing exhibition is in my opinion of museum quality. A rare find.
