Bequest of Thomas G. Fowler
Wood container carved in the stylized form of a walrus chasing a seal. The body of the box represents the walrus while the hinged lid serves as the swimming seal. The hinge pin doubles as the walruses' eyes. NOTE: Two very similar examples can be found in the Anchorage Museum collection, number 83.153.43 and in the publication titled “Survival: Life and Art of the Alaskan Eskimo” from the exhibition of the same by the Newark Museum in Newark, NJ.
