As promised on a previous post, here are the bear paw giant clam shell obtained right here in Sa'ipan. To the left is a small bear paw in fairly good and recognizable condition. However, the one on the right has gone through the elements and is massively deteriorated. I will be carving more sinahi from the right bear paw.
Same bear paw at a different angle.
At this angle, the bear paw is laid on its back as illustrated with the smaller version to your left.
Another bear paw giant clam that I cut in preparation for carving.
Another bear paw laid on it back showing massive deterioration. I hope the interior of this one is of good quality for another sinahi piece.
