Look at this curious rabbit in action, carved deftly in genuine and legal mammoth ivory. Notice the delicate etchings, perfect delineation and symmetrical curves. See the uplifted rear leg as it scratches its ear, while the forepaws rest on each other. See the claws, the padded paws and the fluffy fur on the rabbit’s body. See the flow of the fur, as if it is rippling in the air. Don’t miss the inquisitive nose, alert expression and the active rabbit in action. Notice how the Master Carver has carved the rock over which the rabbit is sitting. There is a complete layer of vegetation as leaves can be seen with ease.
Carved to Perfection- Rabbit in Action
Turning it over to the side gives a realistic picture of how the mammoth ivory tusk has been cut, for the Master Carver to sculpt this exquisite ivory figurine of rabbit in action. Look at the split in the core ivory which has deep brown hues, due to the absorption of soil minerals, which has given colored hues to the milky white ivory. Look at the Schreger lines, which can be seen with ease, as cross-hatch patterns. The Master Carver has signed and authenticated the sculpture as genuine mammoth ivory.
The rabbit in action looks relaxed and on its back as it leans over to scratch itself. See the delicate ears, how it folds over and looks translucent. Check the carved ivory that resembles a rock and how the rabbit in action sits on it. The fall of the fur hair, the angle of the leaning body and the curves that have been delineated in pure ivory with such élan. The complete sculpture is set upon a solid teakwood base that not only adds to the beauty of the figurine but lends to the color aspects.
