I agree with Mark.
I see no Schreger lines, grain, or anything else in the photos which makes me feel like the material is ivory or bone or carved.
At the same time I see a lot in the photos suggesting molded resin.
That is, the selectively high polish fantasy camels, what appear to be ridges, bubble voids and pimples from the mold, and the simulated cracks in the black end "carvings".
The fact that there was no photo of the cut "end" of the object which would be the first thing one would look at for determining the material is pretty informative.
I assume the piece originally included a molded resin base.
