Est. $400/600

Note: “The artist remembered the spine-tingling experience of being confronted by a shaman performing. The magic elements, the antlers and the claws indicate a shaman; the streaming hair, the long dancing tassels and the traditional design on the boots indicate that she is a woman.”
Furneaux et al., Arts of the Eskimo: Prints p. 114-5
