A portrait of an Inuit depicted in profile. This person is wearing a fur coat with a white fur collar.
It is unsure whether this person is a man or a woman. The hair bound in small twists on each side of the head is in accordance with women's hairstyles, as one can witness by examining the individual portrayed in item #R9266-2. Further investigation is needed.
