An INAC biography of Qumaaluk said, "[S]ubject matter . . . seems subordinate to the sensual depiction of detail in braided hair, rippling garments and hunting implements. Tools and weapons are carefully rendered, seams, either in clothing, tents or kayaks, are precisely delineated." This sculpture is the perfect embodiment of that statement. The contents of the hunter's pack are displayed on the outside of the pack in careful detail. Levi's carefully detailed and finished carvings present an interesting contrast with the rougher carvings of his brother, Joe Talirunili.
