This stylized painting features a courageous man in his kayak/baidarka'sriding through huge waves in a store. Along the coast of Alaska, hunters used 1 and 2 men baidarka's (skin kayaks, ipyax) for fishing and for hunting seal, otter, and whale. They were extraordinarily light and maneuverable and carried Alutiiq (Unangan & Aleut) men far into open seas. They wore gut parkas to stay dry and the baidarkas were watertight. It is recorded that they reached speeds up to 7 knots.
