Due to the nature of the materials it is difficult to discern the condition of the items. The walrus carvings have wear to the footrims, notably there is a chip to the front left foot. One of the walruses is missing its teeth. A few areas of wear to the bear carvings of the oosik including some small splits and some areas of discoloration throughout.
