Beneath this sepia print is the statement: 'Olnick's Funeral, Dexterity.' The picture shows a group of eight Inuit around a funeral mound in a snowy wasteland. All of the men are bareheaded and most are wearing furs. Two men are leaning on the mound. Olnick was a local Inuit who once visited Dundee on a whaling ship and Dexterity is an island in Baffin Bay. Today it is uninhabited.
