The phoenix’s body is carved from fossilized ivory, specifically walrus ivory that has lain buried between 300 and 5,000 years. Our fossilized walrus ivory is gathered by the Yupik of St. Lawrence Island, Alaska, where only they have the right to collect this important economic and cultural resource. The Yupik use the fossilized walrus ivory in their own carvings and also sell/trade it. Minerals in the earth stain the fossilized ivory a bevy of gorgeous earth tones, making it a material greatly valued for its singular quality.
