This is a tiny bone that has been lightly painted to enhance its natural look. I found it broken on the end, giving it an asymmetrical look. It hangs on a beige coloured cotton cord that closes with a lobster claw clasp. It is accented with four coconut shell beads. Finding it broken, and painting it a natural colour emphasizes its original owner's state of decay. This will remind the wearer of their mortality, a fine momento mori.

The bone measures 2.5" long and 0.25" wide. The cord measures 11.5" long.

The acquisition of this bone was respectful, and humane. No unnecessary killing has occurred.
