The traditional Inuit tailored parka is patterned after a

garment found in the Anchorage Museum’s permanent

collection.  It is constructed of  indigenous furs, graphic

leather panels with a Native motif,  and whale bone

toggle buttons.

The soft musk ox hand-knit mittens show a mythical

good luck fishing motif. 

The musk ox is a mammal indigenous to Alaska. 

Boots are partially sculpted with fur trim accents.

The lifelike salmon is hand- sculpted in Cernit,

then oil painted for added realism.
