I love this Antique Ivory Carved Skull with cabochon gemstones polished and decorated to appear as beetles. This is believed to date from the late 20th century or later. It is signed, but the signature mark is undeciphered and the artist unknown. It is believed to be of Chinese or Japanese origin. Overall Dimensions: 7″ H X 4.5″ W Auction Asking Price Was: $3,900 More - http://obsessedwithskulls.com/blog/2012/10/antique-ivory-skullpture.html

Laura Watson Benedict (1861–1932) was the first anthropologist to travel to the Philippines in 1906 to study the Bagobo people. In 1910, the Museum purchased Benedict’s collection of 2,534 Bagobo artifacts for $4,000 and she was hired to accession it.
Four years later, Benedict became the first woman to earn a doctorate in anthropology from Columbia University, publishing her thesis, Bagobo Ceremonial Magic and Myth, in 1916. According to anthropologist Jay H. Bernstein in a 1985 article on Benedict, her study of the Bagobo “remains a forgotten treasure of 20th-century anthropology.”
