The half-undressed, bare breasted, Japanese Geisha has been carved from a piece of pure mammoth ivory. The master artist seems to have caught the action in ivory pretty well, as each movement and delineation has been done to perfection. The back shows the complete kimono along with the beautiful patterns on the dress. The folds and curves of the apparel are magnificent and look real. Notice the beautiful hand painted patterns and floral designs that have been done symmetrically and with panache to the traditional designs.
See the graceful loosening of the sash that opens the front of the kimono baring her torso. Look at the evenly crafted and sculpted facial features, hands and body, while the slipping kimono looks ready to slide off her arms. See the flow of the lines, the action as it has frozen in time along with the beauty of the finish and luster of pure antique mammoth ivory.
Bare feet, with the kimono falling in folds, is dramatically set upon solid warm colors of teakwood stand. Notice the tiny detailing and carving on the stool as it accentuates the brown hand-painted, floral patterns on the dress.
