The beautiful sculpture of frogs on lotus has been carved in pure mammoth ivory. Look at how the ragged edges of the broken piece of mammoth ivory tusk has been delicately crafted, to form leaves of the lotus. See the bend of the lotus stems and the drooping leaves while the Master Carver has managed to sculpt a beautiful lotus at the back. The hues of brown that can be seem in the top edges of the ivory is due to the organic and pure mammoth ivory, while it lay buried in the permafrost and absorbed the soil minerals. This has lent it an amazing hue that gives a richer and genuine look to the ivory.
