In Three Cousins, Shuvinai depicts a recurring subject in Inuit art: artists presenting their drawings for a buyer. On the left, Shuvinai holds a drawing of a woman with her signature blue eyes. In the middle is Siassie Kenneally (b.1969), holding a drawing of a fish head. On the right, Annie Pootoogook (1969–2016) is holding up Kijjautiik (Scissors).
By representing specific work of each of the three artists at the time of its creation, Three Cousins cleverly stops time, successfully capturing the enthusiasm of the artists working at the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative (today Kinngait Studios) in 2005.
