Irene Avaalaaqiaq is one of the most prominent Inuit artists in Canada. One of her wall hangings sits in Canada House in London, England. She also has wall hangings presented at the Winnipeg Inuit art museum and Canada's National Art Museum (bio here)

She has many publications including a book called "Myth and Reality" and has been in hundreds of exhibitions. Her book describes her wall hangings, her inspirations and her stories behind her imagery. Here is a brief biography about her on wikipedia

This particular wall hanging is very colourful and lively with much bravado and panache. It would certainly make for an amazing gift.
