Carved on an outer half of a MAMMOTH IVORY TUSK, the sculptor has carved intricately showing a dragon scene, with typical Japanese dragons, with thick scaly claws and skin. Beaded black eyes and fangs are clearly visible. You can see the stunning beauty of the mammoth tusk which has been left in the original brown state. The Master Carver signature can be seen at the end of the tusk. Although the carving is not deep, one can see each detail on the tusk. Each horn, legs, scales and claws are noticed in creamy white. The ends are polished though rough cut, showing the natural beauty of the tusk. This piece is mounted on a handsome, carved high quality wooden base that magnifies the beauty of the ivory tusk carving. It is signed by the artist.
