Northwest Coast, Shaman with Frog Tlingit Halibut Hook, Southeastern Alaska, 1880 AD
A powerful Tlingit halibut hook in the form of a Shaman with a frog carved on his chest. The original twine is still attached and the piece shows good historic use. The strong imagery would surely have been used to evoke supernatural powers while fishing. Custom mount included. 10 1/2" height x 2" width x 4 1/2" depth.
