Artefact of the day 6/8

August 7, 2013

DollWhile yesterday’s find of the day was a stick doll – Today’s find of the day is a doll. Cheryl & findIt’s the first doll of the season. It was found by Cheryl in area B at the start of the day. On the way out to site she stated that today she was going to find the find of the day and a museum piece – incidentally she found both in this doll. It has a very fine face and a grove on the head for fastening hair. This is the first doll we found at Nunalleq that has this. Usually it was human hair that was mounted to the dolls, and it is not unusual that dolls in ethnographic collections have both hair and clothes.
