This beautiful pendant shows an eagle head atop the head of a woman. Her hair falls down around her neck and into flowers at the base of the pendant. Both the eagle and the woman display a proud look reminiscent of so many noble native american artworks. The mammoth ivory is a beautiful woody tan colour. The back solid silver scroll work is patterned and of high quality hand made construction. The bail is hinged. This is a one-off both in terms of the unique ivory colour and in the skill of the individual carving.
