"Turreted Objects (Modified Winged Objects) as they are called, walrus ivory, and Punuk in cultural identity, St. Lawrence Island, prehistoric Yupik. These are actual artifacts, that I may use as reference for a product line for Yupik distribution, in this particular case, these would be amulets, (pendants), using mammoth ivory or bone." 'My blog; 'In My Own Words' describes these artifacts from the Yupik as being influenced by extraterrestrial associations thousands of years ancient.  Some are flying objects (Winged Objects) with mechanical incising on their surfaces." 
"Yupik and Ipiutak Inuit Art and artifacts...rather an obscure cultural identity, lost, really, except for the occasional 'recorded' artifact discovery on St. Lawrence Island and mainland coastal sites of the extinct Ipiutak of Point Hope Alaska.  I have a small collection of actual artifacts from St. Lawrence Island, and I have collection of photos of the many artifacts from excavations to use as samples for study.  This (photo) of a 'Punuk' Walrus is one of the salvaged motifs I am bringing back to the Yupik cultural project."
"The Queen of the Dragons"  'Woolly Mammoth Ivory, natural color, Sidmore Studio"
 "Completely suspended on pins as the body left no room for a stand. Teak wood burro, very enduring material and matches the Dragon's color.  Interlocked dorsal spines, wingless flying Chinese Dragon, traditional.  "Chocolate colored (natural) Woolly Mammoth Ivory."
"Amulet traditional Chinese Dragon, on Woolly Mammoth Ivory, crystal and amethyst beads, with garnet and turquoise...lightly gold colored for presentation"
"Twelve Centimeters to the top of this sculpture, traditional 'winged version' and armored head plates, every scale carved in it's place, detail study."  "Mammoth Ivory" sculpted on all sides, signature, and I link all of the dorsal spines together, well, most of them, and this adds strength to them."
"I went through a production study of dragons, as with this example, it is a normal level of quality, and intricacy, a traditional motif executed traditionally.  On occasion I get close to refined versions, indeed maintaining impressions. 'Woolly Mammoth Ivory' natural color."
