Fossilized Walrus Ivory Eskimo Bowl

This is an unusual artifact. It is a long narrow rectangular bowl with angular ends.  It is unlikely that it was carved to be used as a food bowl.  It must have been made for either medicinal or ritual purposes. In either case, it is a very uncommon object. Given its age, it is in excellent condition with only two chips on the rim.
