    An antique carved musk ox model of a large Fish or shark. Possibly North American native, not sure. If I'm wrong please tell me. The body has been carved for scales. It has incised eyes and teeth, comes to me with work needed, but I love him as he is. Great character. Measures around 55cms. So, quite big! Not a modern tourist piece either.

      Hi, he seems laughing!
      These are rather Asian, not American... Yours has 3D scales as this one, complete with all fins and stand:

      Modern ones, less detailed scales, made in Kerala, India:
