Sami has created a remarkable piece of carved art with HUIA CHATTER. This carving is the slender, curved form of a female bird. It is perfectly carved and closely replicates the real thing - look closely at the beautiful honey-coloured grain (some of the nicest we have seen) and the detail at the tip of the beak!

Sami has added a sterling silver bale so you can wear it with your own chain if you choose. We will ship this piece with an adjustable Maui Blue cord and lovingly packaged 

The material used for this carving is Alaskan Woolly Mammoth Tusk.

The Mammoth Tusk used for this piece is CERTIFIED 34,690 YEARS OLD (+/- 815 years). 

We had our mammoth material carbon dated to get an accurate measure of its age. The testing was done for us by GNS Science, a New Zealand Crown Research Institute and New Zealand's leading provider of Earth, geoscience and isotope research - so their assessment of this material is as accurate as is possible using radiocarbon dating technology.  

Watch the brief video to appreciate the 3-dimensional character of Sami's carving.
