Carved from bone this scraper is a unique and fine example. The face is powerful while the body is simplistic and sharp for utilitarian use. This example can be seen in a photo among many others in John and Marcia Friede's home in an article in Art Tribal magazine 2005.

This scraper stands 9" tall.
