    This 1.625" long hand carved bone pendant has an elephant, seen from his left side.  He has a lowered trunk, which has been curved inward.  On close inspection, one can see that part of the trunk and the tusk appear to be missing.  However, the surface has been polished, suggesting that either this is an old break or the maker simply worked the mishap into the design. The face, ears, and tail have all been detailed.  He stands on a curved base with incised lines.  The recessed background is slightly curved and has been drilled with small holes.  There are also larger reticulated areas around his trunk and legs.  The carved abstract area at the top of the pendant has a small hole (from side to side) for attachment.  The back has no embellishments.  Origins and age are unknown, although it seems to have been made somewhere in Asia.
