Alaskan Native Art Yup’ik Eskimo Woven Dance Fans

Eskimo peoples, particularly the Yup’ik, use fans in their traditional narrative dances. This pair of dance fans, dating from around the 4th quarter of the 20th century, incorporate traditional materials: a woven grass part with dyed seal gut for color; fur; and feathers. A 20th century touch is the colorful strands of yarn.

Fans are each approximately 13 inches across and 11 inches high.

Because these fans contain several types of wildlife materials, they can only be shipped to a U.S. address.
