Ornamented needle case (tubular bone)

The needle case is made of narrow tubular bone of a large mammal. The item has a polygonal shape. The section is close to a pentangle. The ornament is geometrical, asymmetrical on the sides. One of the sides has two groups of lines, the opposite side is not ornamented. The ornament style is close to taiga groups of Glazkovskiy stage, and, probably, reflects cyclic functions.
