Here are 2 more C'upik style dolls from the Chevak region of Alaska. These are by Rosalie Panyuk. One of course is a breastfeeding mom. The other is a hunter...notice his waterproof overcoat made from sealgut! Vamantaknits asked about the faces. The faces are sewn leather (seal or caribou skin). Noses may be pinched and stitched or actually sewn on with small patches, teeth and eyes are made with tiny beads.
