Lot Essay

Visière eskimo constituée d’un bandeau d’écorce cousu à l’arrière. Six sculptures en ivoire figurant des animaux marins y sont fixées. Cette visière se distingue par l’allongement réduit de sa zone frontale. Voir Dorothy (J., Eskimo art : tradition and innovation in North Alaska, University of Washington Press, 1977, p.83) pour une visière comparable conservée au British Museum. Voir également l’étude très approfondie de Lydia Black sur le sujet Glory remembered : wooden headgear of Alaska sea hunters (1991, Seattle).
