A pendant of new walrus ivory carved by Eskimo carver, Moses Soonagrook. This pendant has 2 faces, a bearded shaman face on side, a typical Eskimo face on the other, with 2 whales, on on either side. This is a conical shaped pendant and the narrow end has a whole for a necklace chain to pass thru. This narrow end looks like a pointed cap when the faces are viewed.
Moses Soonagrook, Eskimo carver, lives in Gambell on St. Lawrence Island, Alaska
The pendant is 2.25" long and approximately .75" at widest diameter.
Part of a collection of Eskimo and Inuit items which was built by one gentleman over several years. More items from this collection are now available - check more from this colleciton in "Antique items from other areas" and "current work from other areas"
NOTE: - currently California and New Jersey ban the sale of ALL ivory - so these can not be sold or shipped to anyone in either state. Should you live in one of these states and purchase this - I will not ship to you, I will refund your purchase price.....and relist this item... (And no international sales either - as many countries prohibit purchase/sale of any ivory)
