Eskimo in origin, although it is mostly (DeArmond's) own invention. Loosely based on a certain type of mask from the Aleutian Islands, the print illustrates a story of a woman who came down from the sky country, where she married a mortal and had two children. When her children were half-grown, Sky Woman took them away to live with her, and returned to her sky kingdom.
