Wolf carving done on ancient walrus tusk ivory by unknown artist. The color in this rare piece of ancient walrus tusk ivory is outstanding. The striking tones are the result of minerals which have been absorbed into the ivory over hundreds and hundreds of years when it was buried in the ground in the northern Bering Sea area. The alert young wolf seems to have sighted a prey. Nicely done. Not much of this color of walrus tusk around today.
