Charm of horn [big horn sheep horn?] in the form of a land otter, but without tail, inlaid with four rectangles of California abalone shell along the back, and with abalone shell eyes, the back feet broken off. While this seems to be a charm, the missing tail and feet also suggest that it may have been a finial from some item of shaman's equipment, broken off incomplete.
