Yup'ik Shaman's Mask: Like nepcetat, (shaman masks) the plaque of this walrus mask has five holes beside which five carved animals originally sat. Five feathers decorate the rim. The mask is small and may have been worn as a forehead mask.
Finely carved wolf's head, with tongue protruding and (originally) three black feathers inserted in the upper rim. Men continued to carve similar wolf, fox, bear, and caribou head masks into the 1930s. SI, 153632 (21.6 cm)
