Set of 2: Eskimo Indian dolls


Availability: 1 in stock

One female and one male, carved dolls from Alaska, Kiana. They are both 5 inches tall with fur wrapped on their backs and heads. The female is carrying a jar and the male is holding a sling shot weapon for hunting. Sold as a pair. ** Brief history: (as told to me by the locals when I lived in Seattle, WA.) In 1970, Nunivak dolls, which named after a small island in the Bering Sea, were created when Eskimos traded the furs in Seattle which were in turn paid for by people carving dolls. Originally, these furs were made from reindeer or elk. Excellent condition
