A large tapestry depicting hunters collecting eggs.

Pangnirtung Tapestries are characterized by a unique collaboration between artist and weaver. The images used in the tapestries begin as drawings commissioned from local artists. These are interpreted by the weaver, who will select the size, colour and composition of the image as it will be expressed in wool fibre. The weaver may refer back to the artist for confirmation, but will make the critical artistic choices which will determine the final appearance of the tapestry.
