I bought a Baleen carving of a whale pull the other day and was told that a woman from barrow carved it! Who might that be???? Does anyone in Barrow know a woman up there doing such carvings??

I am looking for a woman artist from Barrow alaska who might have carved a scene of a whale pull on Baleen. Please let me know if you know of any women up there doing this type of sculpture. It is three dimensional.

We bought 2 baleen carvings in June '06 from the Top of the World hotel. We gave Joe Sage,our tour guide 200.00 for them and another 100.00 to send them to us. After NUMEROUS times of talking to Joe and email address exchanges we still have no idea why we haven't recieved them! Joe seemed to be a very trustworthy citizen of Barrow but I would now tell people to steer clear of dealing with him. I honestly can't believe that he would scam us for 300.00! He is very involved in his community and he doesn't give the people of Barrow a very good image.

I am a AK native woman artist from Barrow. It would help to see a pic of the piece. I don't think I made it. There are several women here that are artists. Are there any markings on the piece?
