inuit snow goggles

Early 20th century Inuit snow goggles in patined bone. The Inuit people were up until the 1960s a mostly self-sustaining culture. Although they now are confronted with the modern world some still uphold their traditions and knowledge to survive and thrive in a hostile environment. Living from hunt they respect nature and every last bit of a catch is used. For example these goggles which are made from bone. As a object it is quite intriguing and the concept of a goggle to view the world makes it a conversation piece. This piece has a lovely patina overall and is mounted on a custom made base.
