Finely crafted and hand carved ivory statue of a man scratching his back with a large leafy stem is delightful. Look at the satisfied expression that the artist has managed to carve perfectly. See the perfectly symmetric and proportionate facial features, the raised eyebrows and the delight of a well-scratched itch depicted on his face. The half-open robe, displays the ribs clearly, which shows that he is a thin man. While the robe is half off his shoulder as he puts the large stem to scratch his back. Notice the folds of the dress, the grip on the leaf and stem, details on his hands and the slight hunch of his shoulders which highlights the slight spinal column clearly. Look at the folds of the robe that fall delicately as he uplifts his arm to put the step inside the robe.
He has a gourd tied on a cord while he uplifts his right leg to get the right position. It is a unique pose and exuberate happiness in some sense. Look at the unique hat that he wears. It has a check-board pattern patch on the hat and sleeve, which is hand-painted and is tiny in comparison but clearly done.
