This beautiful sculpture carved from mammoth tusk ivory of an Oriental man with a pipe is sitting below the coconut tree. Look at the exquisitely carved robe that has been hand-painted to add to its glory. The checkered pattern on the border is different from the usual floral patterns. Notice the large floral designs that are aptly placed on the knees. Hand-painted with delicate colors that bring out the translucence of the ivory without harming it, the sculpture is signed by skilled artist who is a master carver. The satisfied look, happy smile and relaxed attitude have been symbolized in ivory to perfection.
Look at the tiny, curling waves that have been made as naturally at the edge of the tusk, while the etched waves are filled with dark pigments to give it the right shade. Notice the traditional style of dressing and hairstyle. He has a bucket close to his left and one of his feet is resting on a lotus leaf. Notice the intricate details on the leaf and the dull green color that has been hand-painted. The complete figurine with the coconut tree and the large leaf that he holds in his left hand has been beautifully done. The wide, sturdy and carved teakwood base not just provides support but is perfect in complementing the lustrous ivory.
