Group of three stone carvings including a seal, a bear, and a wolf. A sticker with "Isserkut" is adhered along the bottom of the wolf. "Drake" is carved on the bottom of one of the bear's paws and a label reading "A gift from Sagway Alaska Corrington's 99840" is adhered to the bear's belly. The seal is carved with the name "Joanassie" and partially illegibly numbers, possibly the artist's disc number. Carved by an Inuit or Yup'ik artist, one of the peoples indigenous to the North American Arctic frequently referred to as Eskimos.
