Dried donkey's hoof travel memento found in Syria by Charis Schwarz

in Syria, 1965-1968.
The object is a small, well preserved severed donkey's hoof with some bone attached. Fur and skin are still present and it has been mummified to the bone. Due to aging and exposure to elements, the colour of the hoof, bone, skin and fur has changed to a dark golden brown.
