Lance holder for the deck of a kayak, made from ivory. It consists of a centre piece shaped to fit against the inverted 'V' shape of the deck of a kayak, with smaller pieces attached at each end with an iron rivets. The faces of the centre and end pieces are cut aslant where they join so that the end pieces extend inwards and upwards at a shallow angle. A piece of babiche connects the inner part of the end pieces to the centre piece by passing through holes drilled in each piece, and then wrapping around itself. A hole drilled through the joints at each end would have been used for mounting the holder to the kayak. The upper surfaces of the centre and end pieces are dcorated with a series of engraved circles with a the centre. This circle and dot motif is commonly seen on Alaskan Inupiat artifacts.
