Eskimo ivory seal carving
Some Alaskan Eskimo carvers will etch and darken animals’ whiskers. This artist has chosen to do so with the seal’s eyebrows. We have seen this done before, but we do not know who the artist is.
ca. 4th quarter 20th century
3 7/8 inches long x 1 1/4 inches wide x 3/4 inch high
