Description

The listing, ESKIMO SCRIMSHAW BOLO STRING TIE - {Signed by Artist in Diomede, Alaska} Vintage - Very Rare Find!!! has ended.

This item was created by native Alaskan, Ron Ozenna at his home in the fishing village of Diomede Island. A federal act in 1972 states it is legal to own or sell items made of Walrus tusk if they were made by a native Alaskan while in the state or islands of Alaska. This item meets all of those requirements. I encourage you to check this out for yourself.
THIS IS A LEGAL LISTING.

Now the good stuff.
Winner will get the exact item shown in the pictures. The carving measures about 2.5" and about .25" in thickness. Each end of the rope tie are 1" stone pendants (I think, because they are quite heavy.) I don't know what the metal clamp is made of nor how it is attached to the reverse of the carving.
This is an absolutely ONE OF A KIND work of Native Alaskan art. Would be an excellent Christmas gift for any art lover!

Interesting...The Diomede Islands, also known in Russia as Gvozdev Islands, consist of two rocky, tuya-like islands: The Russian island of Big Diomede, also known as Imaqliq, Inaliq, Nunarbuk or Ratmanov Island The U.S. island of Little Diomede or, in its native language, Ignaluk The Diomede Islands are located in the middle of the Bering Strait between mainland Alaska and Siberia, with the Chukchi Sea to the north and the Bering Sea to the south. 9.3 km to the southeast is Fairway Rock, which is generally not considered part of the Diomede Islands. The islands are sometimes called Tomorrow Island and Yesterday Isle because they are separated by the International Date Line, thus Big Diomede is 21 hours ahead of Little Diomede, not 23 hours, due to locally-defined time zones.

That's an awesome lesson. For thousands of years these native people have lived in the harsh and unforgiving wilderness. Most amazing is they created such beautiful things. Thanks for your interest.
