This beautifully carved mammoth ivory sculpture of the God in a lotus flower is completely hand carved. The Intricate details and the level of clarity and skill show the painstaking etching and sculpture made by the Master artist. Notice the large pink lotus flower in the top along with the lotus pod with all the seeds and holes. Even the edges of the holes have been highlighted. Notice the three lotuses stem and another front facing lotus can be seen. Each leaf of the lotus flower can be seen with ease and has been carefully hand painted. Look at the divine God seated within the cover of the lotus leaves and the pods. In Asian tradition, a lotus signifies spirituality, purity and serenity. See the tiny details on the seated divine figurine as he sits ensconced within the large lotus leaves, like a bud. The hand painted details in green on the leaves, pink of the lotus and the highlights are amazingly done.
Notice the way the artist has managed to carve such an intricately detailed figurine of the divinity, as he is seated in the cove of the lotus leaves. The exemplary art work on his robes, facial features and intrinsic headpiece defines the caliber of the artist working with antique yet fragile mammoth ivory. Notice the deity’s meditative state within the lotus. Look at the motions of the hand, the object in his hand and the languid position. The waves splash on the huge lotus leaves that form a cove for the God. The beautiful details are exemplified with the durable wooden stand that not only looks similar to a lotus, but has functional use. Look at the finish and polish of the stand.
