In addition to Arctic life, Inuit artists also do paintings and drawings of Inuit legends such as 'Man Carried To The Moon' by Mangitok in 1959 shown below.
Birds are a common subject of Inuit art drawings such as the one below simply called 'Seagulls' by Helen Kalvak in 1967.
Below is an Inuit drawing called 'Joyfully I See 10 Caribou' by Pootoogook in 1959 which is obviously the expression of an Inuit hunter upon sighting game.
Finally, another Inuit drawing depicting a scene from another Inuit legend. This one is called 'Legend of the Blind Man and the Bear' by Kananginak Pootoogook and Pootoogook in 1959 (probably a joint project by two relatives).
