|Description||Carving: Two pieces of bone. Each is carved into a rectangle with a central groove approximately 3/4" long on the 'inside' face. The middle of each piece appears to be slightly thicker than the end portions. The pieces are attached together by way of a single metal pin, which allows the two pieces to pivot/rotate relative to the other piece. May have been created as part of another project.|
