Aju­maq

Inuit Art Quarterly - - PROFILE -

“Aju­maq is a fa­mil­iar spirit of a very un­pleas­ant type. Ev­ery­thing that it touches rots and per­ishes. It has a dog’s head but a hu­man body. Its arms and legs are black, and it has only three fin­gers on each hand and three toes on each foot.”

(GITZ-JOHANSEN, 1949:14)
