Mammoth Ivory Tusk – Running Horses In the Wild

Did you ever traveled in the country & you saw Horses running in the wild. I just had been visiting in south France in a region named “Camerouge”   – This region is very famous in their open fields & the wild amazing white horses living in it.

And why i am telling you all this – because just after i saw those wild horse in nature running  – i could understand – this amazing mammoth ivory carving art creation of wild horses running in nature.

After that you  have seen the real thing – after you saw the horse running together, after you saw  their  muscles working together like huge machine, they are knows exactly where they want to go & what every member in the tribes is going to do, even though they are on a run.

When i Looked at the Mammoth ivory Tusk of the running horses in the wild & watch it carefully & i experienced a flashback of  the wild horses running in “Camerouge” South France.

What the Horse Symbolizes and its Application in Symbolism Feng Shui:

The Horse (seventh sign of the Chinese Zodiac) in Chinese Feng Shui symbolizes perseverance, strength, loyalty, victory, power, independent, strong spirited, speed and success. It is believed that placing the Horse figurines in your home or workplace will strengthen and enhance all the good traits and characteristics it represents in family members born in the year of Horse. It is no surprise that you can almost always find paintings and sculptures of horses in Chinese homes and businesses.

In Feng Shui, the horses are usually classified into Tribute Horse and Victory Horse.

In ancient China, the Chinese had always associated the tribute horse with gifts given to emperors and high officials, brought by the vanquished to the victors after wars and battles. The tribute horse are seen decorated with robes, laden with valuables such as gold ingots, pearls, gems, gold coins and etc., which represents the aspiration of a comfortable life. The tribute horse brings fame, recognition and triumph over competitors, ensuring your talents and hard work are acknowledged and rewarded.

On the other hand, Victory horses are shown galloping, running upwards signifying upward mobility and promotion, steady and speedy climb to fame and success in career and life. Sometimes they are depicted with birds at their feet, suggesting that the horses are running as fast as the bird can fly. This symbolizes success at an accelerated rate!

    The Dragons On Big Mammoth ivory Tusk

     Dragons  Dragons  Dragons  Dragons  Dragons  Dragons  Dragons

    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.
