Default 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 ??

Hellon,
Not ivory but Rusa deer antler (Cervus timorensis).
