In many of Annie Pootoogook's drawings of interior life at Kinngait (Cape Dorset) you will notice a figure bending over. The link here will take you to a brief article by Canadian Art editor Richard Rhodes. If you click on the camera icon you will see three reproductions. The first, Sobey Awards (2008), has its figures standing upright (Annie received the award in 2006); the second, Erotic Scene -- 4 Figures (2001), has its figures bending both forward and backward (the fourth figure requires some looking); and the third, Eating Seal at Home (2001), where the lone bent-over figure distributes the meat.
