Carved on just the hollow surface of a piece of mammoth’s tusk, it shows each animal in a different position. The rooster seems happy snuggling near the snake, while the rabbit is on the top. The end of the carved masterpiece is highlighted with the natural shine and brown shell of the raw tusk. This gives a very rustic look to the carving. This thin tusk shell carving requires high levels of expertise and skill that only a few have mastered. Just look at the dragon’s scale and the horse’s hooves, notice that each tiny detail that has been exemplified in fine details. A floral carved wooden stand adds to the beauty of this figurine.
