Fantastic!  Takes me back to the historical museum in Juneau AK.  The museum's display of a Tlingit (mannequin) outfitted for open-water fishing, standing next to his seal-skin kayak - the raw material for every single item procured by his or his wife's hand and then made with their hands with their hand-made tools to make it possible for the husband to serve his family and keep them alive - that display choked me up.  That's a fantastic model.

Gorgeous! Any idea what wood the real ones were made of?

Thank you.  Typically would have been black spruce, but also any suitable woods that may drift up onto local beaches.
