They are Happy to Eat Together

Felt pen on paper (75 x 106 cm)

With joyful and sincere hearts they took their meals together, praising God and winning the approval of the entire community (Acts 2:46-47).

My name is Kenojuak. I am writing about my drawing.

Here they are about to eat, the children, men and women. They are eating seal meat. One of the children, the one with his hood on, has just come in from playing. He is happy to find his family eating. There is also a child beside her mother. She wants some meat. The mother gives her meat.

They are happy to eat together and thankful for the food.
