Coming In For A Landing

Coming in for a landing sm

In many Inuit stories, Crow is a bit of a mischief maker. He plays tricks to get his way and sometimes it's a little unclear if Crow is a good guy or a bad guy. In Crow Brings The Daylight, Crow definitely falls under the good guy category for the Inuit people, but he still plays a few tricks. Namely, he shrinks himself down to sneak into a house with a ball of daylight. This illustration is the moment of shrinking, when he hides himself on a girl's collar and rides his way into her home. It's there that he spots the ball of daylight and eventually makes himself large again in order to steal it.
