Ice Age Scotty

Julie Jenkinson


In 1961, 11 miniature Japanese celluloid toy dogs were sent on a Japan Airlines flight from Tokyo to Moscow. Two hundred miles outside of Moscow, the aircraft’s engine malfunctioned and crashed into a glacier in the White Sea. Scotty, the pack leader, guides his fellow passenger canines through a dreamy adventure in the arctic. In this fictional narrative, Jenkinson pays homage to the rare vintage Japanese celluloid toys in her collection.
