Burmese Elephant Bead

Fine and rare bronze age (circa 1st BCE to 4th CE) averturine zoomorphic “elephant” bead, from Burma- most likely Pyu culture (Sri Ksetra?), although similar artifacts have been excavated at concurrent Lopburi sites in Thailand as well as Samon sites in Burma. . There is one lateral crack along the torso. Please note scale in enlargements is metric.
