Title: The Tschuktschi and their habitations.

Description: In his search for the North-West Passage on the third voyage Cook landed a party on the Chukotski Peninsula of Siberia. They were welcomed by the Chukchi people, and European knives, beads and tobacco were traded for Chukchi clothes, gloves and arrows. Although on shore for only a few hours, Webber was able to sketch details of the clothing, huts and pet dogs, all of which he incorporated into this picture.
Creator: John Webber (artist), Lerpiniere (engraver).
Date: 1784
