2 masks from Kings Island

Q: Here are two nice examples of older King Island work. Jim, 1733

A: These two Inuit masks are so good I had to show them to you now. Hopefully, Jim will soon comment on their physical characteristics… and the usual who, what, when, where and how much. A, Bob

    In case these two masks really come from King Island, Alaska, they could be quite important ethnographic objects of this ex-micro-society on that abandoned island…..what proof do we have at hand that these two masks were carved indeed on that island, in the now abandoned village of Ukivok?
