This is an amazing Piece of Mammoth Ivory Carvings Of The Zodiac Man, zodiac animals in two baskets while the small scale dragon is on top of the plank along with the snake that is crawling towards it.
Notice the happy expression and smile that is on the man’s face. With a menagerie of zodiac animals in his basket, the monkey is pulling on his pants, while the rabbit sits high on the beam. The horse, tiger, pig, rat, and the rest are in the baskets hanging on both the sides of the bamboo beam. Notice the traditional dress, finely carved border and the fastenings along with the waistband. Delicate patterns are hand painted on it while the pants are tucked around the knees. The sandals have cords around the ankles to hold them and are carved exquisitely with the toenails and the twists in the cords clearly visible.
Look at the fur on the monkey, the weave of the basket that holds the animals. Such intricately carved and hand painted work talks about the exceptional skills of the master artist. The sculpture is three dimensional and the carvings lend it a life-like appeal. Even at the back, the man’s dress is hand painted delicately showing a wide range of traditional oriental patterns while the folds and curves of the garments are visible with ease. The animals are frisky and have been carved in action and in different positions.
The wooden teakwood stand is sculpted from the finest wood piece and has an intricate border while a carved dragon curled up on a ball serves as the base.
