There are two small fish with amazing hand carved details that measures about 1 1/4 inch long by 1/4 inch high and nice aged patina. There are five arrowheads. Two crosses about 3 inches high by 1 1/4 inch wide with hand drilled holes for wearing. There is also a traditional crosses on animal bone with lots of scrimshaw lines crisscrossed and a hole at top for wearing. Two turtles with hand carved details, eyes, etc. At the bottom of the frame. Also, at the bottom corner on each side are two fish; one 2 3/4 long, the other 2 1/4 long; with hand drilled holes; super details with fish scales, eyes, fins. The centerpiece is a beautiful perfect carved bone spear-point measuring 7 1/4 inches long by 1 1/4 inch wide. On either side near the blunt end of the spear point or two more fish? With double holes drilled near the fins (other ends are rounded). These both measure 1 1/4 inches long. Finally, there is an oval bone 1 1/4 inch long with a center drilled hole. It almost looks like stone, but, I dont think so. Amazing craftsmanship and great display. These items are all glued to a felt backing (black). You can display as shown or carefully remove each with a sharp knife or razor blade. Any glue residue can usually be removed with rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, etc. You can display this frame flat as is or you will need to add a hook on the back to hang on wall (none exists).
