A nice print of a  Snowflake by Maggie Napartuk. This snowflake encapsulates many aspects of Inuit life.

Maggie was born in 1981 in Kuujjuaq and now lives in Inukjuak. She is the grand- daughter of Henry Napartuk. She is a multidisciplinary artist who has explored metalwork, jewellery making, illustrations and graphic arts and linocut printmaking over the years. She has participated in several snow carving competitions at the Puvirnituq Snow Festival. Her artwork reveals her connection to the land and her passion for preserving Inuit traditions.
