Susie Silook doll: an exquisite figure by one of Alaska’s top artists. This design is inspired by ancient Bering Strait dolls. Rather than incising or inscribing surface designs, she has carved some of them in relief. The exquisite face is marked by ancient curvilinear designs. The body has a star design and subtle parka details. Note the curvilinear cutout in the whalebone base, which works effectively with the geometric patterns on the body.
