This Baleen Basket with Walrus Ivory bear laying down was made by Marilyn Hank in Point Hope, AK.

Baleen is a material obtained by Inupiaq and St. Lawrence Islanders from harvested whales, particularly the bowhead. Baleen plates have hair-like structures that filter out tiny floating organisms and fish and are found in the mouth of plankton-eating whales.

Dimensions: 4 inches high x 4 inches wide
