This intricately Mammoth ivory Carving of Japanese Samurai showcases the skill and artistic talent of the master carver.
Signed by the artist, it signifies authenticity of the mammoth ivory tusk art piece.
Look at the fine detail work that is done on the face. See the proud bearing and expressions of valor on the face of the samurai.
The details on the tunic, bow sand arrows, sword and the scabbard defy imagination.
The thin shell of the scabbard is carved wafer-thin while the delicate sword looks menacing.
Can you feel the power that the Samurai yields in the sculpture?
See the delicate fingers, expertly crafted by the artist, the grip ad turn of the wrist as the sword is unsheathed and pointed downwards.
Notice the beautiful patterns on the tunic and body armor of the figure.
The figurine has two swords; one is at the hip within the scabbard while the other one is in the hand of the Samurai.
The scabbard, sword and even the bow and arrow are finely crafted that each detail is clearly visible.
It is the skill with which the carver has managed to carve the antique mammoth ivory to such details.
There might be slight discoloration in the rich creamy luster of the ivory but as the Mammoth ivory tusks was buried deep within the permafrost, it has absorbed the soil minerals, causing shades of brown on the figurine.
