Description

    The Collection of Paul Gregory and Janet Gaynor

    A PAIR OF ALASKAN ESKIMO MUKLUKS
    Napasak, 20th century
    Dimensions of mukluks (sight): approximately 21 x 10 inches each
    Framed in a custom plexiglass shadowbox: 30-1/2 x 30-1/2 x 6 inches (77.5 x 77.5 x 15.2 cm)

    Constructed of fur with hide soles, each crimped at the toe and heel, embellished with geometric design of contrasting light and dark seal skin and red wool trade cloth.

    "My brother was at one time a company manager for the Napasak tribe in Alaska, and he gave me these mukluks. They had belonged to the chief of the tribe, and they had them there in the general store. I had them framed for my gallery because I thought they made a beautiful, interesting hanging."
