Miniature animals made out of ivory.

If Sue Steinacher’s house was burning down, this is one of the treasures she would grab on the way out. It’s a tiny seal made from walrus ivory. She feels that only someone who knows the animal intimately could reproduce it in such perfect detail.

I asked Sue the question about the house burning down. She has so many treasures I wondered what she would take if she could only fill her pockets and run. And then it got me thinking. What would I take? What would you?
