This is a beautiful figurine of a majestic lion in all its glory as it moves forward confidently. Look at the sinewy body, the grip of the forefeet as it walks forward with the head held high. Sculpted completely by hand, the artist has put into ivory the life-like replica of the lion. See the large open mount, wrinkles on the skin and the curl of the tail. Notice the stalking and aggressive position that the lion has been carved in. It shows power, aggression, predator and majestic look that no other wild beast can come up to. The delineated curves and lines, fine polishing and symmetric body shows that the artist has studied the look and behavior of the animal before sculpting it. See each hair on the mane individually as the lion roars while hair on the rest of the body is clearly depicted.
Set on a simple teakwood base, it has been hand carved and customized or this specific statue of the mammoth tusk ivory lion. The stand has grooves for the paws, which helps to stabilize the lean figure of the lion and balances it well.
