The Master Carver has managed to carve rhinos on a bridge, into the soft yet fragile mammoth ivory, giving the complete sculpture a vibrant look with three dimensional effects. See the skilled cuts on the mammoth ivory tusk edges. Etched in detail, the vegetation has been carved delicately which can be seen with the tiny leaves and flowers that dot the ground beneath the rhino’s feet.
Don’t miss the indented skin on the legs of the rhino or the rough patterned skin on the body that overlaps in layers. Look at the smaller rhino on the left side of the tusk. Check the size and the way it has been carved in its entirety. Look at the pointed horn, well-carved to perfection. The smaller ears, beady black eyes and layered skin that has the right texture.
