No. 357

A scrimshaw tooth in Oceanic art. To the front two tribal faces one above the other and to the reverse a sharp toothed fish. Measures 11cm x 4cm. It has a hole to the bottom on either side as it was probably worn as a necklace. We believe this now to be Haida art. They are an Indigenous group who have traditionally occupied Haida Gwaii, an archipelago just off the coast of British Columbia, Canada.
