Fossilized Walrus Ivory

The walrus is a mammal (Odobenus Rosmarus) found in the Arctic Ocean and subarctic areas of the Northern Hemisphere. Walrus remains, including their ivory tusks, have been organically preserved in ice and as ice in the Arctic Circle melts and shifts, pieces of fossilized walrus ivory rise to the surface. MONIQUE PÉAN sources fossilized walrus ivory from indigenous Alaskan Natives who sustainably gather the material from the Arctic Circle.
