ALASKAN ESKIMO CARVINGS & ARTIFACTS are
ALL ON THE WEBSITE
Glenn and I
have FINALLY finished posting all the 400+ Alaskan
Eskimo carvings and artifacts to the website.
We can't believe it either. Our showcases are
full again, and interest has been high and favorable.
There were so many, we had to rearrange the
Alaskan Carvings pages to a very full 4 pages (double
what they were before), and make a separate category
for just the Alaskan Eskimo Artifacts (also
doubled in size) for you to view and purchase. Here
are a few teaser photos to share.
incredible find, a complete set of ancient sled
runners (ARTIF-850) excavated by Eskimo Yup'ik on
St. Lawrence Island.

framed by polar bear fur (AK-PIN-5)

musk ox, mounted on a chunk of woolly mammoth leg

We hope you stay safe during the raging snow
and ice storm in the Eastern United States. Perhaps
you will have time to peruse the website and enjoy the
"Journey"! We in the upstate of
South Carolina have 2" of ice and are hunkered
down here and enjoying the view.

WANNA SELL ON EBAY" interviewed Heidi from Where
on Earth for a half hour.

Ebay. In the process, Heidi was able to share
interesting stories about the things they sell, and
tips on why they are successful.

This is Glenn in his (new) vintage wolverine

feet and working like crazy to catch up.
