Kunstkamera - Siberian and Far Eastern

This page contains photos that were classified as being of Siberian and Russian Far Eastern peoples from the website of the Peter the Great Museum of Ethnography and Anthropology (http://www.kunstkamera.ru/kunst-catalogue/index.seam?c=PHOTO). Each photo on this page is linked to the source of the photo.

The photos are displayed at kunstkamera.ru either as thumbnails or in an interactive viewer that only displays a small area of an image, but you can download a larger version of an image by changing the values of the parameters for the width and height in the URL of image.

I used shell commands like this to download the images:

curl 'www.kunstkamera.ru/kunst-catalogue/index.seam?path=62%3A3495183%3A3507041&c=PHOTO&cid=234629&page='{1..10}|sed -n 's,.*c=PHOTO&amp;id=\([0-9]*\)&amp;.*<img src="\([^"]*\).*,\1 \2,p'|grep /spf/|xml unesc|sed 's/w=95&h=95/w=1000\&h=1000/'|parallel -C\  curl www.kunstkamera.ru/{2} -o kunstkamera_ket_{1}.jpg

Some persons in the photos that contain multiple persons might not belong to the people that the photo is listed under, and some photos could also have been classified under the wrong people.

Photos from Kunstkamera of Ainus, Aleuts, Eskimos, and Uralic-speaking Siberians are on other pages of this website.
