An ancient Inuit whalebone scapula which was fashioned into a door for a storage cache. Collected in Pt. Hope, Alaska in the 19th century, and 2 ancient snow shovels, also fashioned of whalebone, these found on St. Lawrence Island. These pieces have mask-like appearances with "eye" openings in each of their "faces". Very rare as a group.
