It looks like a rescent, animal&#39;s tooth or fetus. There is a hole and some carved line on the head part.<br />
<br />
This is a comma-shaped bead made from dark green jade. Such crescent moon-shaped beads, referred to as<em> gogok</em>, were used to decorate golden crowns, clothing, and belts. This example, which was attached to other ornaments via the hole in its head, is typical of comma-shaped beads of the Three Kingdoms period. Three parallel lines are incised across the hole, from which four more incised lines radiate upwards.<br />

One of a pair of delicately carved, hippopotamus ivory statuette-pendants.  This female figure's head and upper body lean slightly forward, as opposed to her counterpart who stands upright.  Both, however, have been carved by the same hand and display the hallmark characteristics of the northeastern Luba stylistic form, namely: the round head with a convex face, large, coffeebean-shaped eyes, a rectangular mouth with prominent lips, a cylindrical neck, and a coiffure decorated on the back with a cruciform pattern. Additionally, both female figures clutch their breasts in their hands, a pose commonly seen among Luba sculptures of women. The statuettes have been pierced through, allowing them to suspend from a string.

This small Pende ivory pendant (<em>ikhoko</em>) depicts a delicately carved male head. Stylistically, <em>ikhoko</em> bear many of the facial characteristics of anthropomorphic Pende <em>mbuya</em> masks, after which they have been modeled. In this particular example, the pendant feature an ovoid head, a tall coiffure, a large, bulbous forehead, heavily lidded, closed eyes from which vertical lines extend downward, a wide, up-turned nose, and a pointed chin. Three bands of fine decorative motifs adorn the top of the forehead. The pendant also possesses a pale yellow patina.
