Finally, something to do with all those walrus mandibles you have hanging around…

These fantastic faces are carved into walrus teeth still in the jaw bone. They are just a first taste of the museum’s newest acquisition, an amazing collection of historic walrus ivory and bone (and tooth!) carvings from Greenland. Lots more to come!
