Eskimo model Kayak with Figure

An Eskimo model skin kayak from the Norton Sound area, probably Unaligmuit. The figure is a half figure with carved wooden hands and a well carved and painted face The body is stuffed muslin and he is wearing a gut parka. The kayak is missing almost all of the attachments which would have originally been secured to the Kayak but the kayak itself is in excellent condition. This is an exceptional model kayak and figure and will be a good addition to one's collection.
