ALASKAN NATIVE ESKIMO CARVINGS

FOR SALE

mask20b.JPG (145988 bytes)

Ivory and bone carvings of animals and Eskimo activities.  This category is close to our heart, you will see this page changing constantly, now that we have opened up this avenue to share.

This is Genuine Native Alaskan art work, well documented, so your collectible retains as much provenance as we can provide.  They are a result of strictly regulated legal hunting of these animals by subsistence Native Eskimo people who carve them for re-sale for their livelihood.

Items are hand made by Native Barrow Eskimo (Inuit/Inupiat) or Native St. Lawrence Island Eskimo (Siberian Yupik).

No shipping outside the U.S. of these items due to the Marine Mammal Act regulations.

 

ABOUT ST. LAWRENCE ISLAND, Alaska

alaska-stlawrence1.JPG (38478 bytes)

Though we have not visited this island (yet), many of the carvings we purchased were made by Alaskan Natives from this island off the coast of Alaska (from the towns of Gambell and Savoonga).  Here are photographs to share what life is like there.

  

Being a subsistence people, they hunt whales, walrus and seals to survive, and use as much of the animals as possible (eating, making something functional, or making art work to keep or sell).  No one must touch these bones except the Native Alaskans if/when they are ready to make use of them.  Also, any animal they hunt is highly respected even after death, from the way the meat is stored to what happens to the bones.  These whale bones are aged & appear ready to use for carving or structural supports:

alaska-stlawrence2.JPG (38043 bytes)  alaska-stlawrence3.JPG (124133 bytes)  

This whale backbone will be aged for some time so the oil leaches out of it, and animals will continue to clean the meat from it, before it is ready to use:

alaska-stlawrence4.JPG (159790 bytes)  alaska-stlawrence5.JPG (38678 bytes)

    Homes are utilitarian on the outside (it's the inside that counts), and remember there's snow covering everything for 10 months of the year, and very harsh conditions).  You will also note what they are using for underpinning on this house - whale skulls and backbone vertebrae.

alaska-stlawrence6.JPG (36201 bytes)  alaska-stlawrence7.JPG (38321 bytes)  alaska-stlawrence8.JPG (152357 bytes)

  These whale ribs are used as sentinels to guide the Native Alaskans back to the right part of the shore from their hunting trips.  As the island is flat with no trees, this is how they navigate.  Each bone is unique and recognizable to a particular part of the island.

BALEEN Fronds from BOWHEAD WHALE

From BARROW, ALASKA unless otherwise marked

What is baleen?  Fronds of baleen hang down inside the whale's mouth, the hairs on it catch plankton that it eats.  Baleen is made of keratin (the same material as our fingernails but much thicker).  It can be cut, polished and etched by Native Eskimo people into beautiful art work
