Enticingly carved, the complete tusk has been used to carve a detailed 3D sculpture. Notice the delighted look on the face of the two men drinking sake, deep in thought. With a pagoda high up on a cliff, the foliage is dense around the building in the background, yet seems an integral part of the sculpture. See the complete sculpture as it has been carved all around the diameter of the tusk, giving it a natural look with depth and texture. Each robe has its own uniqueness and the artist has been able to blend in the figures perfectly with their attires.
Look at the more decorated and elaborate dress of the man on the left with his superior headdress and ornate style. He holds a fan in one hand and the sake glass in the other. While the shorter and bald man, has a beautiful dress with traditional motifs but has less hand-painted details. The fine chiseled features, polished bald head and other exquisite details are so clear and crafted with superior skills is evident. Set upon a teakwood base, that has been custom carved for this specific mammoth ivory sculpture.
