Spruce Tree Little People - Small
Spruce tree "little people" with jade bead eyes, also known as Ireenraq. Made by Yup'ik Alaska Native artist Moses Tulim.
In the Yup'ik culture there are mythical stories about five or more different kinds of little people. Some are said to have magical capabilities to transform themselves in animals, plants, and other shapes to avoid being seen. These stories serve as a reminder to respect all living things.
