Those poor Chrysochroa fulminans (Jewel Beetle) don't look very well. This one looks a tad happier!

well, first impression is the arm and thigh of an ivory statuette. Of course, _Stefan_ wouldn't do that to us would he? - taking pictures at his gran's house.

It is from an animal, it is not a statue per se, and it's not made of ivory but something similar.

It is not mammalian.

It is bone, but not a carving. Well, to be more specific, it's supposed to be made of bone, but I doubt it actually is.
