Miniature copy of an Inuit kayak.
Kayaks and the similar baidarkas were already in use 3,500 years ago, from Greenland to the Aleutian Islands.
These were made in the 1920's -1940's and sold to tourists and servicemen on their stay in Greenland.
It is made with a typical wooden skeletal frame covered with seal gut or skin. Finely carved bone parts were connected to the kayak with wooden pegs, as was done in the traditional way.
Has been preserved in excellent condition an originates from a Danish private collection.
