The master artist has been able to capture the friendliness of animals well and portrays that in the sculpture.
Mammoth ivory tusk laid buried deep under the tundra permafrost and that is why the mammoth ivory sculpture may have pigmentations and discoloration.
The organic tusk has imbibed the minerals within the soil leading to a dark brown exterior and beige ivory with cream.
The beautiful and unique sculpture carved through the tusk and each layer unfolds another layer of lustrous ivory, used to carve details of the verdant tropical trees and vines.
