Siberian Yupik Treasures

The Collections Resource Center at Chicago's Field Museum is protecting delicate Siberian Yupik leather and fur coats. Of particular interest are 15 large coats which were previously stored in cramped conditions in an old storage room. Now the coats are now more spread out, cascading from top to bottom of a two storage bays. While the CRC must be conservative with its space, part of each coat is now visible without having to move any of them.
