Fish of the Ob’ River

My work explains that the Selkups are taiga People whose main traditional occupation is fishing and hunting. The ornament in the work represents the fish of the Ob’ River. From spring to late autumn, the Selkups are engaged in fishing. Traditionally, the Selkups settled near rivers, and in winter they went to the taiga, where they mainly hunted fur-bearing animals, upland game, elk, and other animals.
