Buffalo Phil's deep thoughts

What a remarkable selection of objects, Clara! I had no idea there were this many elk ivory objects in the museum's collection! Two thoughts come to mind: the first- I'd like to show you the elk ivory necklace I made; the second- where does your fascination originate?

Marg2309's deep thoughts

How fun to focus on one particular characteristic: elk ivory. Who knew they were so prevalent in our collection here at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West?! Which six will you eliminate to get down to the 25 for the contest? Thanks for enlightening us, Clara!
