  • Large Vintage Hooper Bay Basket
    $250.00 Quick View Quickview

    Large Vintage Hooper Bay Basket

    Large Vintage Hooper Bay basket A very large Eskimo basket made from Hooper Bay grasses. Natural and brown colored grasses. The natural grass has a nice golden patina acquired over 40 + years. The darker grasses have faded slightly, as evidenced in the inside of the cover, but are still very attractive. This lidded basket is likely the largest we have had. Probably dating to the 2nd or 3rd quarter of the 20th century, the basket is in good shape, with only minor loss of grasses, as seen in one photo. 9 in. high, including finial x 11 1/2 in. diameter at its widest.

    Jacob Simenoff Aleut Bentwood Hat

    , ,
    Jacob Simenoff Aleut Bentwood Hat This bentwood mask is painted red ochre color and black with traditional images of hunters and seals. It is adorned with what we believe to be walrus or sea lion whiskers. The hat presents a bird profile, and thus has painted birds eyes as well. Braided sinew strap, walrus tusk carvings of a bird and other shapes, and hematite plus other beads complete this package. Bentwood hats were used traditionally by Aleut, or Unangax people on their ocean hunting baidarka voyages. The hat would shade the hunter's eyes from the sun, and also hide the eyes from their sea mammal prey. There are few contemporary native makers of bentwood hats; the signature on this hat appears as Jacob Simenoff, 1997. See a video about bentwood hats here. Hat is 16 in. long x 8 in. wide x 9 in. to the top of the whiskers. Because of marine mammal content, this item can only be shipped to a U.S. address.

    Susie Silook Qavaanguq

    ,
    Read about the artist... Susie Silook: Qavaanguq Susie Silook, one of the most original artists to come out of Alaska, created a major piece based on a dream she had: "I dreamt I was in the bow of a boat with an unidentified man at the helm, and the land in front of us felt like home. We saw movement to the left, front, and I got worried that a whale would overturn the boat. The whale breached, backwards, from our left, and somersaulted over us, entering the water on our left. My heart was pounding like mad! The man said I had to kill it, and I was vehemently refusing, but he said :"if it offers itself to you, you have to take it. You have to make the sacrifice So in the end the bowhead is draped over the boat like a big fish This depiction of the dream includes the whale in two positions simultaneously: morphing from the human head and emerging from the human feet. It includes a second human emerging from the torso and spirit figures painted across the body. Carved from whalebone and mammoth ivory; blue and sienna pigments; wood and brass base. 41 3/4" across; 37 3/8" high, including base

    How Fog Came to Be

    One day, an Inuk was fishing, as he was very hungry. He kept on looking around to see if there were any other animals around that he could catch for food. As he was looking around, he saw a giant man, coming towards him. The Inuk was scared that the giant would kill him, so he lay down and pretended he was dead. When the giant came to the Inuk, the giant saw that he was dead so he picked him up, put him on his back and carried him to his home and put him on the floor. When the giant's wife saw what her husband brought back, she decided to go outside and prepare something for the meal. The giant was tired, so he lay down to go to sleep. The Inuk realized that he was going to be eaten, so he opened his eyes to see what he could do to escape. When he opened his eyes, the giants children saw him and started yelling, "he moved his eyes!" The giant, very tired, angrily said, "no, he's dead, be quiet, " and the giant went to sleep. When the Inuk opened his eyes he saw an axe close to the giant. When the giant fell asleep, the Inuk jumped up, grabbed the axe, killed the giant, and ran out the door and started running away. The wife started running after him and, as she was gaining on him, the Inuk swung the axe into the ground. The ground opened up, started filling with water and started becoming a river. When the wife got to the the edge of the river, she yelled out to him and asked, "how did you get across?" The Inuk yelled back to her, "by drinking the water." The wife then drank the water until she felt she couldn't drink anymore. The Inuk told her to keep on drinking, so she did. She kept on drinking until her stomach burst and a fog started to come out. This is how fog came to be. Beautifully executed in soapstone and elegant alabaster. 7 1/2" high x 10 1/2" deep x 5" wide

    The Will

    This is a stunning sculpture by Alec Lawson Tuckatuck, a young Inuit artist from Kujjuaraapik. Tuckatuck, who is descended from a line of fine artists, is depicting a defining moment, when a hunter has harpooned a beluga whale. The hunter is holding on for dear life as the whale attempts its escape. The "Will" refers to the Inuit people's determination and persistence to survive in a harsh and dangerous environment. They will do whatever is necessary to survive, often placing themselves in perilous situations to feed themselves and their families. Carved from alabaster and soapstone. 17" high x 10" wide x 4 3/4" deep.
