Item description:

See scan - perfect condition. Measures approximately 100mm in diameter and about 50mm thick. This is a truly genuine totem sculpture that belonged to the leader of a far north Siberia tribe. A true ancient tribal art. It has been passed through generations and generations. This particular piece was brought by a now very old man, who married during the 50ies a woman - a daughter of the leader of that ethnic group. Later they lived in Russia in the town of Archangelsk and was brought to Bulgaria during the 70ies. The piece was presented by the father for the wedding of his daughter as one of the sacred things this ethnic group possesed. The whole piece is apparently hand made at least 900 years ago and is made out of a whole stand alone piece of a natural topaz semi precious stone, which is almost all size a perfect crystal with great brownish caramel color. The whole topaz sculpture weighs about 275 grams / about 9 oz and is considered to be of about a 1120 karat single piece!!! Carved and hand engraved is a beautiful head of a North Sea like lion and when light goes through its back the eyes of the lion are shining and sparkling. A true ancient cult item. One of the scarcest pieces I've seen. A true collector item.
