Part of a huge mammoth ivory tusk shows pile of frogs that the Master Carver has sculpted, sitting on lotus leaves. Look at the exquisite milky white mammoth ivory and the way it has been polished to bring out the beauty of the sculpture that is full of frogs. See the indented lotus stem as it bends down due to the weight of the large frogs that seem to sitting comfortably on it. The leaf is upturned and bends over artistically. The Master Carver has brought the scene to life using his artistic caliber and skill which highlights the beauty of the sculpture.
Pile of Frogs in Pure Ivory
The partially broken and hollow mammoth ivory tusk piece has been carved with care and ensured that the beauty of the scene is not marred. See the differently sized frogs on both the sides of the sculpture. The texture of the skin, beady black eyes and even the holes to breathe can be seen on the side. One of the frogs on the left can be seen sitting on the lotus bud. The large lotus leaf can be seen at the back while tiny waves below it are completely carved in detail. See the lotus seed pod over which another large sized frog is sitting. Look at the indentation over the skin of the frog. A large curved and folded leaf can be seen above it and within it is another frog trying to climb up.
On that frog’s left is another lotus seed pod. See the details on the seedpods as each seed can be seen with clarity. At the bottom of the sculpture, the signature of the Master Carver can be seen in red. This hollow piece of mammoth ivory has been exceptionally carved in detail with pile of frogs in different position. Set upon a solid base of beautifully carved wood, the sculpture looks good.
