The beautiful mammoth ivory tusk sculpture portrays the animated play of frogs in a lotus pool.
See the rough skin of the frogs, the curve of the lotus leaves and the fine details on the lotus pods.
The artist has managed to expertly capture the hopping and jumping of frogs over the lotus leaves and each frog is in a different motion.
The fluidity of the curves, clear detailing and finely sculpted scene is a delight to behold.
The skilled master carver has prominently signed to authenticate the art piece is genuine.
The back of the sculpture retains the raw beauty of eons old extinct wooly mammoth ivory tusk as found in nature after being buried deep under the permafrost in the Arctic regions.
The dark brown with shades of blue are due to the ivory tusk absorbing the minerals from the soil over centuries as it lay buried.
The artist has left the natural luster and beauty of the different shades but carved through the layers to bring the rustic delight of frogs in the pool.
It is set within teakwood base. Only genuine, legal and organic mammoth ivory tusk has been used for carving while delicately polished to bring out the natural beauty of the extinct wooly mammoth tusk piece.
