This is a beautifully carved shell cameo depicting a Native American warrior with a mohawk. This piece has been expertly carved in three dimension. The artist even used the banding in the shell to mimic war paint or facial tattoos. Unique and wonderful!
Notes: The cameo and the bezel surround likely date to around 1830 while the shank was a later addition.
