bone or ivory ?

Hello again, ;)

A small carved statue,
What do you think,

is it made from ivory or bone ?

Carved part seems more ivory but is the inside ''hole''
the place for pulp and blood vessels in the animal teeth
or a bone ??

Not ivory but Rusa deer antler (Cervus timorensis).

I agree, antler.

Didn't know antler could look like that
