Ivory Carvings

Mammoth Ivory Information

Ivory Owl

These owls would be a conversation piece in any home. They are great examples of real Alaskan art. The artist, Don Ungott, passed away a couple of years ago and his well known owls are still in great demand. They are made from fresh walrus ivory. The feathers are hand scrimshawed on to the ivory and the eyes are a double inlay of fossilized walrus ivory and baleen. Each owl is different. They stand an average of 1½ inches tall.
