Elizabeth Angrnaqquaq was born near Garry Lake, NWT, in 1916 and moved into Baker Lake in the 1950s. She had a gift for the graphic arts, and plied her needle to create some of the most intriguing wall-hangings to come out of Baker Lake. Her first public exhibition was in 1976, and her work has subsequently been collected by major museums and galleries in Canada and the United States. In this work, Angrnaqquaq uses a combination of applique and embroidery stitching to create sensitive colour juxtapositions between cloth and thread.
