AN ESKIMO KAYAK MODEL
Provenance: Jo de Buck, Belgium
The Arctic skin boat known to Inuit as the Kayak was protected from waves, spray and the elements by a watertight covered deck. Low and slender in shape, the speedy Kayak was admirably designed for its primary function: the pursuit of sea mammals, waterfowls and caribous. These hunting boats, quiet in use, were found all over the North, as far west as Siberia, and as far east as Greenland among the Inuit.
