Eskimo Bear Head Crochet Hook

The bear's head on this walrus ivory piece is tiny and absolutely charming. It has small circle and dot eyes and an almost smiling mouth. It has a decorated band around its neck that adds a sense of warmth to the carving, almost as if the bear were your own household pet and companion. Although made as a handsome functional implement, it is equally as wonderful as a pleasing example of Eskimo art.
