This engraved bone carving was found by Dr. Allen Heflin. The drawing was made by him which is what is depicted on the carving. The notes are his and it is signed by him. It is made from deer bone and his 5 1/2" long. He states "various decorative elements indicate that this is or may be a depiction of the god xochipilli. This is C1400. This piece has been broken in half and split as seen in the pictures. It has not been glued back together, but fits together perfectly. This allows easy inspection of the patina. Due to a recent diagnosed major health problem, I have dropped the price of this piece and all my items by at least 50% to at or below the price I paid many years ago. Now is the time to pick up a great deal. My loss is your gain. This piece was $900.
