More Superb Alaska Native Art at Anchorage Airport

The Anchorage Airport has a small, but spectacular display of Alaska Native art on the mezzanine between terminals B and C.  If you have an extra 15 minutes or more, it's got first class pieces.  Here are a few examples.

This is part of a Jack Abraham mask.

Joe Senungetuk mask

Elena Charles Yup'ik men's dance fans

Floyd Kingeekuk's four seals - spotted, beaded, ribbon, and ringed

Kingeekuk, I was told long ago, is the best of the best of the seal carvers. 

They have a large book on a platform that lists the Alaska Native art throughout the airport including at this display.

Here's a link to a post about this great little airport gallery I did in 2011.
