Pirate Skull with Cap
“Pirate Skull with Cap” detailed carving of pirate skull with cap created by talented unknown carver on ancient walrus jawbone. Jawbone between 500 – 1500 years old found in the northern Bering Sea area. Whimsical carving with the broad grin brings a smile to one’s face.
This is ancient walrus tusk jawbone found in the Northern Bering Sea area. The material is 500-1500 years old and is occasionally found in ancient Eskimo camp and hunting sites. The marvelous colors are the result of minerals that have been absorbed into the jawbone over hundreds and hundreds of years. Obviously this material cannot be replenished, making it quite collectible and valuable.
