Ivory and Native Alaskan Carvings

The walrus has played a prominent role in the cultures of many indigenous Arctic peoples, who have hunted the walrus for its meat, fat, skin, tusks, and bone. Products made by natives such as the one in this listing help many indigenous artists support their families and make their living. Ivory carved by Indigenous Alaskan natives is legal to sell in the United States. Non-indigenous carved Walrus Ivory has a different set of laws, and needs to have been legally acquired before 1972 to be re-sold (see the Marine Mammal Act of 1972).

About the Walrus (Ivory) (Odobenus rosmarus)

The walrus is a large marine mammal found throughout the North Pole in the Arctic Ocean and subarctic seas of the Northern Hemisphere. Adult walruses are distinguished by their prominent tusks, flippers, and unique body shape. Adult males in the Pacific can weigh up to 4500 pounds. Walruses are most often found in shallow water above the continental shelves, spending most of their lives on the sea ice looking for mollusks to eat. Walruses are relatively long-lived, social animals, and they are considered to be a "keystone species" in the Arctic marine regions. The walrus has played a prominent role in the cultures of many indigenous Arctic peoples, who have hunted the walrus for its meat, fat, skin, tusks, and bone. Products made by natives such as the one in this listing help many indigenous artists make their living.

DELIVERY OF YOUR ITEM VIA FREIGHT SERVICE

This item ships FREE via Freight Delivery.

When items are too large to ship with a common carrier (UPS, FedEx, etc) we are then required to ship with a freight service, which will deliver your shipment on a semi truck. We utilize a variety of freight carriers to quickly and safely transport large shipments to our clients around the U.S.

We pack and ship all of our items with a dedication to safe and secure transit, and over 40 years of taxidermy-shipping experience, utilizing innovative new ways to pack your order in a wooden crate, ensuring it arrives to you in the exact same conditon that it left our store.

If your item is shipping via freight, please let us know if the destination is a Residence or Business, as well as a Phone Number(s) for the delivery location so that the freight company can contact you to set up a specific delivery date and time when your package gets close to its final destination.

UNLOADING YOUR FREIGHT SHIPMENT

When the shipment arrives, it is the CUSTOMERS responsibilty to have either a forklift or enough strong helping hands available to unload the item from the back of a semi truck to the ground and then to its final destination.

For an additional fee, we can arrange to have a semi truck trailer that is equipped with a lift gate that will lower the crate to the ground. This service ONLY lowers the crate off of the semi truck to the ground, it DOES NOT provide service to move the crate from the spot it is unloaded into your house or business. This lift gate service can be of great help to those that do not have access to a forklift or small crew of people to assist in lifting/lowering the crate to the ground. If you would like this option, you MUST contact our store for a shipping quote that includes this liftgate service.
