"Yupik and Ipiutak Inuit Art and artifacts...rather an obscure cultural identity, lost, really, except for the occasional 'recorded' artifact discovery on St. Lawrence Island and mainland coastal sites of the extinct Ipiutak of Point Hope Alaska.  I have a small collection of actual artifacts from St. Lawrence Island, and I have collection of photos of the many artifacts from excavations to use as samples for study.  This (photo) of a 'Punuk' Walrus is one of the salvaged motifs I am bringing back to the Yupik cultural project."
