Yupik Eskimo Ivory Handle, Arctic Alaska, ca 1850 AD

The ivory handle carved with a face expressing both laughter and fear. A ceremonial tool which was likely associated with a Shaman's regalia.  Perhaps a drum handle?  Drilled four times for suspension.  The ivory amber in color from age.  4" length 1 1/4" height.
