A beautiful partial piece of the ancient legal mammoth ivory carving – Fish & Lotus Flowers is expertly carved to delineate the curves of the waves on the back. The front carvings show intricate details of the blooming lotus and fishes. Each of the object is in different movement forms. Notice the extremely delicate scales on the body of the fishes, the delicate lattice work beneath the fishes, lotus stems intertwining through the sculpture. Don’t miss the beautiful lotus pods with most of all the seeds still inside. The clarity and precision of the master carver is evident from the skill of accurate measurement. Perfectly delineated in pure mammoth ivory, the artist succinctly captured the essence of the flowing water, flora and fauna of the environment.
Notice the delicate petals of the lotus. Each of them is portraying the various stages of bloom. Each delicately pointed petal is clearly sculpted, broad at the bottom and pointed at the top. It is carved to perfection, with different sizes of louts are seen clearly. The soft curves of the petals, the excellent finish and polish of the ivory enhance the beauty of the sculpture. On the reverse, the inner tusk is carved to portray the waves in the water. Don’t miss the tiny curls of waves, innocuously giving the feel of the lapping waves on the sands.
This is not the partial full tusk, and seems like a thick part of the tusk which is excavated from the permafrost on the Arctic region. The clarity and milky whiteness has a tint of brown. The raw beauty of ivory is polished to bring out the luster of the mammoth ivory tusk sculpture and as a result, it looks amazing. It is mounted on a custom wooden base. The flow of the artistic excellence is seen in the teakwood base. The master carver has carved the tiny flowers that adorn the base and that in turn, complements the lattice work on the ivory sculpture. It is personally signed by the master carver.
