Cap Haitien (Photo Haiti)

Patrick André Perron

The Inuit carved goggles from caribou antler to help prevent snowblindness.
The goggles were curved to fit the user's face and had a large groove
cut in the back to allow for the nose.
A long thin slit was cut through the goggles to allow in a small amount of light.
The goggles were held to the head by a cord made of caribou sinew.
