The legal mammoth ivory sculpture of a large parrot and squirrel playing on the ground close to it is life-like. The Master Carver has managed to delineate the enchanting scene of the birds and animals at play into the organic and genuine ivory. Painstakingly carved, the feathers on the parrot not only are individually carved, but if you look carefully, each strand on the feather can be seen. Isn’t that amazing?
The skill and experience of the artist carving pure mammoth ivory can be gleaned with the delineated clear cuts, symmetry beyond measure and the soft curves on the animals. Look at the claws of the parrot. The shriveled skin and the rough texture can be seen. The artist has managed to copy the natural style and behavior of the parrot and playful squirrels from nature and encapsulated it in legal mammoth ivory. Notice the bushy tail of the squirrel, as it crouches over the ground, as if looking for seeds. While the parrot with inquisitive eyes, looks yonder as it surveys the surrounding. See the tree branch that it sits on, with its wings tucked well, you can even see the tree growth rings. Notice the half opened beak, as it would make a noise. The beak is delicately crafted, made to size and polished, bringing out the luster of ivory.
Look at the fur of the squirrel where each hair strands is clearly delineated, accentuating the feel of real fur. The parrot has one claw firmly clasped over the tree branch while the other one rests below. From the wings to the tail and even the head feathers, the Master Carver has managed to ensure that it is life-like and original. Notice the clean cuts of the ivory below that forms the stand for the mammoth ivory sculpture.
