Faces of Nunalleq

November 21, 2017

The Nunalleq collection is being returned to Quinhagak this spring, and this will be celebrated with a grand opening of the Nunalleq Culture and Archaeology Center on May 19th 2018. Be there if you can 🙂

Rick has made a draft-poster for the event, picturing (some of the) Nunalleq dolls.

    Each mask has show its own expression/mood, which must be unique to the carver or the subject person. It is amazing the simplicity of the line work/carving that shows so much expression. Just love these.
