This figure appears to be unique. Initial parallels can be drawn to the classic Okvik Period figures of St. Lawrence Island, Alaska. The discovery of this astonishing figure extends our knowledge of classic pre-historic carving beyond the previous geographic boundaries, and firmly establishes pre-Koniag culture as a major force in the ancient artistic traditions of the far north.
