Look at four monkeys on rocks an amazingly carved sculpture that is custom carved on legal mammoth ivory, the four monkeys are sitting with their hands positioned close to their heads. The fat monkey in the middle is sitting with the legs apart and both the hands over its head with a wide open mouth. While the monkey on the left side has put one of its hand over the fat monkeys head and its other hand is over its leg. The black beady eyes have been hand painted with precision on the four monkeys on rocks.
The Master Carver has not only been able to carve the complete four monkeys on rocks sculpture on a small piece of mammoth ivory tusk but has been able to showcase each small detail in perfect symmetry. The fur on the monkey’s body looks real with tuffs of hair etched in haphazard manner. The other two monkeys on the side seem to be copying the fat monkey and hold their hands similarly over their heads. Look at the concentration on their faces of four monkeys on rocks as they sit placidly contemplating over the rocks. Look at the finish and the polish of the complete mammoth ivory sculpture.
The rocks over which monkeys are sitting have natural crevices and cracks the Master Carver has used to his advantage. Tiny etchings have been done and plants seem to grow out of the cracks giving a rustic look to the sculpture. The beautiful sculpture of four monkeys is set on teakwood stand that has been carved in detail. The wood carvings show logs and trees with leaves peeping out from within the branches. This gives the wooden stand provides stability but continues the theme of the mammoth ivory sculpture giving a natural ambience to the whole sculpture.
