This unsigned and undated bird came from the estate of Isabel C. Herdle (1904–2004), Curator Emeritus of the Memorial Art Gallery. Judging from the size, it may have been carved out of whalebone, a material widely used by Native American and First Nations people of the Pacific Northwest. MAG received several Inuit artworks from Miss Herdle’s estate.
