Oval shaped seal skin with image sewn into the main skin using a patchwork technique. The main skin is lighter at the sides and dark down the centre. Light and dark pieces of seal skin are used to create the image of two Inuit people facing forward. The edge of the skin has holes cut into it for stretching or hanging on a frame, with a strip of leather strung through several holes at the top. The back shows the seams where all the pieces of skin have been sewn together. There are green Holman Island stamps on the back of the skin.


The green stamps on the back refer to Holman Island. One is their ulu logo and the other is the Holman Eskimo Co-op stamp.
