This spectacular handcrafted mammoth ivory art piece defines the detailed turtles in varied sizes, over lotus petals and flowers. Giving a look of serene waters with slow moving turtles, the creamy white of the ancient ivory stands out against the dark warmth of teak base.
The beady eyes look real as the master craftsman brings to life the fluid movements of the turtles, with the turn of the neck, while the details on the shell seem real.
Even the neck has been sculpted so amazingly that the folds of the turtle skin are clearly visible. The folded lotus leaves, submerged pod of the lotus seeds and delicate half-opened lotus flowers are finely carved. Each aspect of the carved mammoth ivory tusk brings out the details of the scene so visually.
The piece of genuine mammoth tusk has been finely crafted from the front while the original pigmented tusk has been polished to retain the luster of antique tusk ivory.
Notice the deep cracks and dark shades that developed over eons as the tusk lay buried under the permafrost in the Arctic regions.
This is 100% genuine, organic and legal mammoth ivory that has been sourced from extinct wooly mammoth that lay buried deep within the permafrost.
