Toad Gathering Party
“Toad Gathering Party” detailed carving of toad family by talented unknown carver on fossil walrus jawbone. Adult toad circled by five small ones, plus two tadpoles. Quite a gathering. The detail on this carving is amazing. Mounted on a cocobolo stand, this would make a fine addition for any collection.
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.
