Product Overview

Designed by Lee Downey

Fossil Walrus Ivory Owl Carving. A carving of the owl beautifully utilizes both the shape of the walrus tusk from which the work was carved and the natural color variations produced by mineral seepage into the fossilized walrus ivory during thousands of years of burial in permafrost. Measures 10" long.
