Japanese couple in sunset years

The intricate details of a rustic yet happy life seems to be written all over the faces of the couple. See how happy they look, the smiles on their faces give an indication of being happy together while the lines on the forehead tend to show their age. See how lovingly the old man has his left hand over her shoulder. The fall of the folds is superbly done by the artist. The natural look of fabric is appealing and realistic.

Notice the side buttons of the woman’s dress while the traditional double buttons run down the middle of the man’s shirt. Don’t miss the authentic Oriental patterns that dot their respective dresses. See the bamboo patterns on the man’s robe while the floral patterns and geometric motifs enhance the look of the robes. The Master Carver has managed to hand paint the etched hair such that each strand is visible separately and gives a look of coiffured hair. The woman’s hair is in a neatly tied bun while the man has a long plait.

The Master Carver has managed to put together a picture-perfect Japanese couple into three-dimensional sculpture, using a rare and precious mammoth ivory. Immortalizing the happiness, the mammoth ivory sculpture of the couple is a perfect addition as a decorative item. The sculpture of the couple is set upon a wooden base.
