I got one time a piece of fossilized walrus ivory, a very tip of the tusk with very beautiful colors. The image of an owl fitted it perfectly right. As the base I used a round section of mammoth tusk with nice creamy colors. Both pieces of ivory, walrus and mammoth created a very nice composition. It stands 3-5/8″ (92mm) high and 3″ (76 mm) wide at the base.
