I recently purchased a Walrus mask at an estate sale, I'm looking for ideas on how to mount it. I would like to find a piece of wood with a burl that is large enough to cut length ways about an inch thick with the round part of the burl under the skull and the tusk over the trunk part of the tree. I want to coat the wood in bar topper. Something like this piece I used for my caribou, only a single burl. If anyone knows where I could find a piece like this please PM me the info.
The Ivory measures 31x8 and 30 3/4x8 and the total weight is 24lbs, they are beautifully carved and signed by the artist.
