The beautiful legal mammoth ivory sculpture carved on a tip of the ivory tusk. Despite being splintered in parts, the master carver has managed to use every inch of the piece of the tusk. Look at the details on the trees where each leaf is clearly delineated. The sculpture has been carved with patience and clarity as each intricate detail is visible.
Look at the tiny detailing on the faces of the men. Whether he is smiling or pensive or deep in thought, it is reflected exactly like that. The solid piece of legal mammoth ivory tusk has been carved into to depict the village scene. Two of the men are holding the scrolled parchment while the third one has a hand over it and the other hand holds a large leaf. A boy sits near a kettle that is boiling on the wood- fueled stove. Notice the intensity on the face of the man that seems to be studying the details of the bamboo on the parchment.
See the delicately hand painted tiny bamboo shoots and leaves on the ivory scroll. The fall of the robes, the tiny details on the fingers and every hair on their beards can be seen. Look at the different hair knots that each man has or the facial expressions that they have.
The legal mammoth ivory sculpture is signed by the master carver close to the tip of the tusk. Look at the back. The color hues are due to the permeable organic ivory interspersed with the minerals of the permafrost. The ivory is splintered due to the loss of moisture as it was buried in the Tundra region. The partial mammoth ivory tusk is mounted on a custom crafted wooden base. The beautiful design provides stability and adds to the elegance of the legal mammoth ivory carving.
