Lot 0111
Alaska, United States, Late Pleistocene, ca. 40,000 to 10,000 BCE. Huge tip of a mammoth tusk of the genus Mammuthus primigenius (Woolly mammoth). This comes off a huge mammoth bull that could have stood upwards of 11 feet high at the shoulders and weighed as much as 6 tons. Found in Alaska - where these are much more rare and much finer than the examples coming from Siberia - and showing a nice creamy white appearance with traces of the very desirable blue hue. Custom stand. Size: 32" L (81.3 cm) and over 14" in circumference! Weighs 20.5 pounds.

Note: Due to incredibly stupid legislation we cannot ship to California, New York state or New Jersey.

Provenance: Ex- European collection acquired before 1975

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
