Hand carved by one of the master artist this beautiful full mammoth ivory tusk portrays a wide array of wild animals including rhinoceros, lions, elephants, bison, bears, birds and many more sculpted figures. See the hand painted leopard and don’t miss the intricate details on the tree stump. The awe-inspiring sculpture is a delight to look at and explore. Each tiny animal or bird has been hand carved to perfection. Look at the fur of the bear or the tiny details clearly visible on the trees. The complete sculpture is in 3 dimensional by carving way layers of ivory while the outer tusk has been left in the raw state.
The deep brown discoloration is a natural process of mineral absorption from the Arctic permafrost that turned milky white ivory into a dark brown surface. However, that is another sign that the mammoth tusk is organic and genuine. Look at how painstakingly each animal, bird and foliage has been carved. See the skin of the elephant and rhinos. Each wrinkle is clearly visible. Notice the fur on the bear, spots on the leopard and the lion’s mane.
Nothing has been left crudely but each figure is sculpted with infinite patience and details. Set upon a customized hand craved teakwood base, look at the stand complementing the full mammoth ivory tusk. With a look of extended carvings and details, the sturdy yet intricately carved stand adds to the beauty of the mammoth ivory sculpture.
