Large Tlingit Hand Carved and Decorated Bentwood Lidded Box, Alaska, *Free Shipping

Large Tlingit Hand Carved and Decorated Bentwood Lidded Box.

Large Tlingit hand carved and decorated bentwood box with abalone shell inlays and thick lid. The box was purchased approximately 20 years ago in Ketchikan, Alaska. 'The Tlingit (also spelled Tlinkit) are an indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America.The Tlingit culture is multifaceted and complex, a characteristic of Northwest Pacific Coast people with access to easily exploited rich resources. In Tlingit culture a heavy emphasis is placed upon family and kinship, and on a rich tradition of oratory. Wealth and economic power are important indicators of status, but so is generosity and proper behavior, all signs of 'good breeding' and ties to aristocracy. Art and spirituality are incorporated in nearly all areas of Tlingit culture, with even everyday objects such as spoons and storage boxes decorated and imbued with spiritual power and historical beliefs of the Tlingits. {source: wikipedia}
