Physical description

Carving of two women standing on a rectangular base. One of the women is pegged to the base and is wearing a skirt and amauti (parka), with the hood on her head. The other women (part b) is similarly clothed but the hood is down and there is a baby wearing a bonnet in the pouch. The outlines of the amautis and the facial features of the women and the infant are incised and then drawn with ink or pencil. The part b figure is detached and has an iron peg in the bottom of her foot. There is an extra hole in the base (suggesting a missing piece?).
