This amazingly sculpted family of rooster on a bridge has been hand carved by the Master Carver. Giving the right look and texture to the pure mammoth ivory, the artist has been able to carve hen, chicks and roosters. Look at the delicately crafted wattle and comb perfectly to the last details. See the soft textured feathers on the neck while the thick feathers of the tail stand out in three dimensional, giving a real-time lifelike look to the fowl. The large rooster on the right seems to be pecking at the large flower while there are a couple of tiny chicks under the plant. Don’t miss the vegetation at the feet of the hens and roosters. The Master Carver has not missed any details on this rustic scene. Take a look on the two hens as they huddle the chicks while the chicks seem active and tend to be scattered over the entire sculpture.
Rustic details on the family of rooster
Looking at the mammoth ivory sculpture from another view, it can be seen how creatively the Master Carver utilized the piece of the ivory tusk that might have inherent cracks. The hues of brown accent the milky white ivory and is due to absorption of soil minerals as it was buried for centuries in the Arctic permafrost. The brown hue is a sign of genuine ivory. Se the delicately shaped curls and curves of the flower at the end of the sculpture that the huge rooster is pecking at.
Hewn from a raw piece of mammoth ivory tusk, the bottom of the sculpture has been given a rough finish, showcasing the beauty of the mammoth ivory tusk. Notice the skillfully etched feathers, or the details on the face of the fowl and the intricate patterns on each tail feather. See the different shaped flowers and plants that dot the complete sculpture. It has been set upon a beautiful hand crafted teakwood stand. See the finish and polish of the stand.
