UNUSUAL/SKULL/CARVED OX BONE/very detailed I have had this as long as I can remember, I found it while helping my friend to dig her allotment years ago. I have listed it as Japanese netsuke but really have no idea where it should be. It is a very realistic looking skull which has been carved out of Ox bone... the detail is quite amazing I hope you can pick this up in the photo,s. There is a hole going through from one side to the other so it must have been worn as a necklace at some time or hung from something.. It measures appox, 30ml high 28ml across the front and a depth of 35ml. It is quite macabre but still quite beautiful...
