    This is an unusual Hand Carved Bone Steer Head Button or Pendant, measuring 1.25" (32mm) high by 0.875" (22mm) wide by 0.125" (3mm) thick.  The face has a wide-eyed stare with round dotted eyes and two straight lines for each eyebrow.  The nostrils are two round dots at the end of an angled snout.  There are lines across the snout, between the eyes, on the forehead, on the top of the head, and around the base of each horn.  The horns, above tiny notched ears, are small with their tips angled inward.  There are two 0.0625" (2mm) holes on the forehead and 0.0394" (1mm) holes horizontally through each horn.  The bone, which has been hand carved, appears to be from a cow and has a brown striated back.  Maker, age and country of origin are unknown.  This Hand Carved Bone Steer Head Button or Pendant is in very good condition with no damage or wear.
