Item N-1979-050: 0655

[Inuit man wearing] wooden snow goggles. Carved from willow twigs, these goggles are made in various shapes, and sometime are made of antlers. The inside of the slits is charred with fire to stop any relfection. Slits are usually finer than this and they are admirable to stopping the terrific glare of the snow [sun], though vision is limited to looking ahead [Inuit man in fur clothing].
