Large ladles used at feasts

Part of Northwest Coast Hall.

From the Tlingkit people of Alaska, two large ladles of wood. One has a handle carved as an eagle with its wings closed. The other has a frog carved at the tip of the long handle.

The handle of the one on the right is carved to represent an eagle, and the one on the left has a frog carved on the end of its handle.
