Description

Look at this petite statue of Luk, one of the 3 Chinese wise men, depicting longevity and good health. The old man has a large apricot in his left hand, the symbolic staff in his right hand while the half-bald head and long beard adds to the charm of the figurine. The rest of the hair has been knotted at the back in a bun which is a traditional Chinese hair style. See the two children holding a large plate of apricots, just below the beard as he stoops and smiles. Notice the ingenuity of the master sculptor to carve a unique figurine in solid mammoth ivory with such intricate details. Notice the fine detailing and patterns on the dresses of the old man and the two children.

See the colored floral patterns that have been delicately hand painted with such finish on the smooth ivory surface. See the tiny holes that have been made on the staff, giving it a perfect wooden look with uneven surface. The cascading folds of the old man’s garments are carved with perfection and seem like real silk. The miniscule hand painted motifs is amazingly clear. Set on teakwood base, the sculpture is a unique piece of carved mammoth tusk ivory.
