At Work

It is so hard to resist the temptation to correct Louis Nicolas's drawing. And it is hard to stitch when I don't know exactly what I am stitching. Jacques Cartier's hairy arm? Or is it a closefitting sleeve? Mascoutensak man's beaded buckskin shirt? Or tattoos on his bare arm? It is impossible to know, and difficult to live with ambiguity.
I also don't like how Mascoutensak man's pointy finger is skinnier than Cartier's. I want equality of power.
