Silvan netsuke by AKuznetsov Silvan netsuke by AKuznetsov
The hat of the goblin is made of a chapped tip of a cachalot tooth, all started with it - I didn't want to grind out these perfect cracks and was thinking long about the way to use it.
After I cut it off I saw a definite mushroom pileus and the final image was born.
Cachalot tooth, H62/33 mm.

So.. I finally Googled "cachalot", to find out what the hell it is. Turns out to be a Sperm Whale. Which begs the question; how are you getting teeth from Sperm Whales..? I don't picture you doing the whole Queequeg thing; don't get me wrong, but I thought there was an international embargo against dealing in ivory from these creatures.

On the other hand, this thing is seriously sick! [which, in a certain parlance, means it is beyond good by a factor of ten or better].

I know nothing about embargo, only heard about elephants tusks trade prohibition. their teeth is pretty common material, it's not so rare. I buy them from mariners & don't now where they get them.
