Very nice. Looks like a ptarmigan.
Thanks, Robert. I had to look up ptarmigan. Now I know it's an Arctic bird, about the size of a small chicken.
The marrow gives it a curious presence. Isn't Robert a gem? Ptarmigan!
Since those birds are all over Alaska, I'm wondering if the material might be whalebone, adding to the likelihood that it's Native American.
