Owl carving on whale’s tooth by Armando Ramos. The detail on this excellent carving is incredible. Each feather is delineated. Note the tree stump at the base. The bottom of the tooth has been worked so the tooth can stand upright. Probably created in the early 1980s by Ramos. Excellent opportunity to get a first class carving at 1980s prices.
