Description

This image is a photo taken of the side of a bone ice skate. With this view it can be noted that the ice skate is of a beige to light-brown color, since the bone would not have been painted, and that the bone looks a bit worn. Also, that the ends of the bone are cut and that the top has a hole through it. The skates are worn down due to constant use, and the top has a hole for the purpose of giving the wearer the ability to tie the skates on with a threaded strip of leather.
