I won these carved bones on eBay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=13765&item=160011733471 and incoporated them into a necklace to wear (though some might find this sacroligous)





Anyone have any ideas as what they are? They certainly are not chicken bones, maybe pig? Or human hand bones......

BTW the pix on the eBay listing are much better. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=13765&item=160011733471

THANX!

I'm guessing they're pig bones.

Look at the front "fore arm" on this
skeleton.

Ahh yes I can see that they could be that. They are quite old looking from the patina on them does anyone have a clue about these where they might be from or ANYTHING?
