This unique extraordinarily rare maskette is made from translucent polished woolly mammoth bone with tremendous character. It has a carved hairline and incised cheeks. It is also heavily tallied marked on both inside edges. It is heavily patinated making this an extremely desirable piece. The primitive simplicity of the rudimentary facial features attest to its extreme age. It was found in Alaska as the permafrost is melting. It is 2 1/2"...
