All the Wallhangings We Couldn't Bring You in Threads

Wallhangings from Qamani'tuaq

With an almost infinite number of beautiful artworks but only a certain number of pages, we always have more images for an article than we can put in our magazine. For every piece we add, one (sometimes more!) is cut. Today, we’re bringing you nine of the wallhangings that didn’t make it into Krista Ulujuk Zawadski’s Qamani’tuaq wallhanging piece, an alternate for every artwork we originally featured.
