This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Luke Anguhadluq, Inuit artist was a powerful camp leader of the Utkuhikhalingmiut people, Anguhadluq had two adult sons to hunt beside him, a rare good fortune during the years of starvation among the inland CARIBOU INUIT.

When he moved into Baker Lake at age 73, too old to hunt, he turned to drawing as a source of income. His drawings depict a world view unique to hunting peoples and reminiscent of prehistoric art.

When Anguhadluq made drawings of the drum dance, he made the skin drum enormous and yellow like the sun, dominating the centre of the picture. Small, static Inuit men and women spiral around the drum like rays emanating from their shamanic source.

When drawing, he laid the paper between his outstretched legs and turned the drawing as he worked, conceiving his image like a map, looking down on his subject, with one continuous horizon line formed by the edges of the paper.
