The Sheldon Jackson Museum’s November artifact of the month is a model qasgi (SJ-II-F-63). The inside depicts an elaborate ceremonial scene with figures. Although the collector is unknown, “J.W.C. Anvik” is inscribed on the box's exterior. John W. Chapman, a missionary stationed at Anvik from 1887-1930, may have collected it.
