Detailed group of squirrels in wilderness
The piece of mammoth ivory has been exquisitely sculpted utilizing all of the vertical and horizontal surface, to bring to life a group of squirrels. The crevices in the ivory piece have been bejeweled with tint floral motifs and leaves, adding a sense of natural beauty to the figurine. The group of squirrels pose for eternity, inquisitive and cute. Set amidst flowers and two mushrooms, it shows how small the squirrels are.
Looking at it from the bottom, the hues of brown are visible. This means that the mammoth ivory is genuine and authentic as the Master Carver has signed at the back. Additionally, the hues are due to the mammoth ivory tusk absorbing the soil minerals for centuries. This renders it hues of brown and grey. See the rough cuts at the back, signifying rocks that give the figurine a natural and rustic look. It has been set on a rectangular table like base, giving support and elegance to the sculpture. Carved in teakwood, the base helps to balance the figurine while the deep wood complements the milky ivory sculpture of group of squirrels.
