Additional Information: The Steller's Sea Cow was a large herbivorous marine mammal that is related to the Manatee and lived in the Bering Sea. These sea animals where hunted for their meat and fat. They were fearless of man and were easy targets for hunters. Hunting pressure caused the extinction of these animals in the 1700's. The Steller's Sea Cow I used is from the inside of the bone and has lots of cracks/crevices.  

Honduras Rosewood is a very hard and heavy wood with multi red and brown colors. Honduras Rosewood has a distinctive rose fragrance. This wood has been sought after hundreds of years ago from furniture and musical instrument makers. Honduras Rosewood sometimes produces a burl in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes small birdseye knots. This burl wood is highly figured and is sliced into veneers and thus accounts for much of its rarity and price. The Honduras Rosewood Burl that I use has been sustainably harvested. This piece of burl has both Heartwood and Sapwood that gives the contrasting tan on maroon colors and provides a nice contrast to the Fossil Steller's Sea Cow Bone.
