The piece of mammoth ivory has been carved in detail as a wooden log. The Master Carver has crafted five turtles over the wooden log, giving the impression that the group of turtles are moving in tandem.

Check the quality of the mammoth ivory that has been used. Any tiny crack has been used to its advantage by the Master Carver to carve five turtles on log. Although set on a wooden frame, the exterior of the mammoth ivory tusk has a brown layer, which is due to the pure ivory absorbing the minerals in the soil of the permafrost. This authenticates the mammoth ivory piece as natural and pure. The Master Carver has signed on the sculpture giving it further verification that it is a genuine mammoth ivory art piece.
