Custom Made Stand

Kayak Model ~ Length - - - 2"

Base ~ Length - - 2" DESCRIPTION:

Very fine antique Inuit kayak model with attached original wood and cloth doll. On a painted metal custom stand.

Circa 1890 - 1910.

This example is of museum quality and features an elegant, thin, and proportionate, realistically made, miniature kayak with the Inuit hunter in place. The boat is made of sealskin, sewn with sinew over a wooden frame. The hunting implements and double paddle are made of wood with bone tips. The Eskimo doll is of carved wood and wearing a realistic hand-sewn linen cloth parka.

The carved features of the dolls face are extremely well-done, giving this piece a personality and life-like quality. CONDITION:

Excellent ethnographic condition as shown in the photographs. Light overall wear and several small brown spots to the clothing. Overall aged patina to the sealskin and the wood surfaces. No restoration. Please see the close-up photos for condition. Kayak models were traditionally made by the Inuit to use as teaching aids and instruction of young male hunters in the art of using a kayak during maritime hunting trips. They were made to be accurate for this reason.

This fine example was purchased from an old ethnographic collection in the San Francisco area and has been in my own collection for 25 years.

It has become difficult to find good examples of kayak models with doll.
