One of the most unusual, and certainly the most bizarre, bone items that I’ve owned, this object, skillfully crafted of dense bone, is in the shape of a traditional casket or coffin, with a removable top lid. The hollow interior contains a carved human figure in the form of a cadaver, with an ivory cross at its feet. The figure is carved from a piece of dark, but not heavy wood. The “coffin” is 4 5/8 inches long and has a greatest width of 1 ¾ inches. It is 1 inch thick. It is exceedingly well crafted and is decidedly “different.” Fine.
