This tiny, fossilized walrus tusk buddha was carved in Bali, Indonesia. “He” has done of bit of traveling since then, making his way to Tucson, AZ, then, on to Boston, MA, next, to Bali once again to become a pendant, and then, back to Boston! Where will he go next? We hope he will bring happiness and contentment to his wearer!

Unearthed by indigenous Inuit people during the brief Arctic summer, prehistoric fossilized mammoth or walrus tusk ranges from 2,000 to 50,000 years old. It collected from St. Lawrence Island (located west of mainland Alaska in the Bering Sea), just south of the Bering Strait. The collected pieces are then intricately hand-carved by accomplished artisans in Indonesia.
