When i saw this amazing ivory tusk i immediately ran over my computer to tell you guys about it. I don’t know if you can understand the beauty of that tusk – Fist of all i like the natural look of the tusk, second the carvings of the dragons are amazing. I wrote about the another dragons tusk before several weeks ago but this tusk is something different. This is what i like about ivory carving – that it’s not like porcelain or silver – at ivory carving you will never find duplicated piece even if it will be exact pattern especially on Mammoth ivory tusk – at every corner at the tusk the carver an find new surprise like cracks, different color & the natural shape of the tusk that the carver should work with. The example between those two tusks of the dragons is a good example how to tusks with the same subject are so different from each other & even can sit at the same collection at the same room & no one will notice that the subject is the same..
The tusk it self is amazing 83 cm of the Dragons hand carved all over the tusk. The tusk is well preserved & in very good condition. It’s always surprise me to get across those big mammoth ivory tusk – well carved & to imagine that they are belonging to a prehistoric animal that extinct before 10,000 years ago. It’s exciting every time & i am lucky to get across all this extinct beauty.
