More FDCs from the 'Inuit' series. The cachet on left shows an Late Dorset ivory comb from North Devon Island. Love the 1979 ulu cancel!
The flying or floating ivory bear from middle Dorset Culture, found on Baffin Island.
Ivory snow goggles found in a c.1200 Inuit house.
Yesterday I visited the Museum of Civilization and am pretty sure this harpoon point is the caribou antler point in a current Arctic exhibit. If so, it is 1 of the 155 artifacts which John Hadley unearthed in a Thule dwelling c.1400 on his return from the Canadian Arctic Expedition. Is the cancel on this 1977 FDC an Inukshuk?
