Beautiful all natural Mammoth hand or front foot. The foot is composed out of 24 bones from the big ankle bones till the tiny unguals on the toes. All bones originate from the North Sea brown banks of the coast of the Netherland and have been treated for perfect preseration. By the decline of traditional fishing techniques only rarely such qualitative foot bones are still dredged up. We were lucky to acquire an old collection of over 1000 bones, which made it possible to compose this foot with bones of the correct size and osteologically correct. Very rare aesthetic collection item.
