The pictures do not do the detail in this item justice. It is a wonderfully carved real wart hog tusk piece carved into a bears head. It is done by DW Kelsey a great artist of carved antler, wart hog tusk & more. It is capped with a blonde colored wood...I do not remember the name of it...sorry! It is 3 3/4" from nose to end of wood cap. Very nice!!
