- Curator's comments
Purchased by A.W.Franks, from 1867 Paris Exhibition. Included F.M.Graham "Checklist of Russian and Siberian Collections", BM Occasonal Paper,1977, p.62, (where the sledge and seven dogs are noted as "missing" - subsequently identified). Christy "Four figure" Slip description includes dog sledge, but visitor to collections (4/1992) suggests that sledge may be Yukhagir and of separate origin. (AMD,5/1992).
This dog sled is not likely to have been part of the festival scene As.5068a. The dog sled is associated with winter and the festival scene with summer. This dog sled is also not likely to have been made by Yakut (Sakha) people. From comments made by Tanya Argounova-Low on 30/05/2008
