Circa early 20th century. Good condition.

Circa early 20th century. Articulated wood body adorned in a traditional winter garment of seal skin, hide (probably caribou), embroidery, cloth, and hair. A black cloth headband covers a small crop of hair. The hooded anorak is made of seal skin, underneath which is a cloth shirt, patterned with stars and anchors. The seal skin pants are detailed with fine strips of colorful leather; and the mukluks, which are probably made of caribou hide, are trimmed with colorful embroidery and strips of leather. Accompanying this figure is a baby–also made of wood–dressed in a cloth anorak and placed in a seal skin sack.

Approximately 15 inches tall.
