This antique Victorian style necklace comprising a carved Indonesian Fair Trade figurine pendant in fossilized mammoth tusk and a supporting vermeil necklace, weighs 31.7g and measures 17inches long, the artfully rendered Hand-crafted figurine pendant measuring 2.75 inches long and 1.65 inches wide. This one of a kind Victorian style necklace of Balinese craftsmanship is sustainably and masterfully carved in fossilized mammoth tusk, an ancient material dating back as far as 35,000 years. Even though extinct for nearly 10,000 years,the woolly mammoths are distant cousins of present day elephants. The permafrost of Alaska, Canada, and Russia occasionally yields the preserved remains of these giant pachyderms and their tusks, often excavated by gold miners during digging. This exquisite Artisanal custom figurine pendant is an intricate example of the unique Balinese talent, carved from fossilized mammoth tusk of 'striated tan-cream' color, measuring 7cm x 4.4cm, depicting the anatomically accurate full-length silhouette of a winged female figure of spiritual significance. All features of this figurine, her attire and the delicate flowers seen at her feet are carved with attention to detail and precision. The reverse of the pendant is smooth and skin-friendly, featuring an orbicular bale to support the flexible and smooth Fair Trade necklace which secures with a concealed tubular tongue-and-groove closure.
