The geometric patterns edge the whole screen, giving it a beautiful look.

Organic mammoth ivory

It is different to carve and work with pure organic mammoth ivory, as it is antique, fragile yet solid to work with. It takes the skills of the top sculptors to be able to etch and carve detailed panels, screens and sculptures using this antique material. Look at the expertly crafted Year of Dog screen, with writing and paneling on the sides. The size and accuracy of the hand carved screen is amazing.  See the luster on the dog, the milky white ivory shining. Even though the ivory plate is thin, the Master Carver has managed to give each design a three-dimensional effect. Look at the patterns on the front panel. The cut and carve of each curve on the left-hand side is clean that only the best Master artist can do. There are no raw edges or uneven patterns.

Year of the Dog

Commemorating the Year of the Dog, this screen is perfect with the right lettering and a commanding dog in the forefront. The hanging tongue, side teeth can be seen while the dog seems to be friendly and happy. Look at the clean muscles that are depicted, the rear legs and the curve of the dog’s tail.  Don’t miss the clarity and beautiful luster of the mammoth ivory and the way the screen has been carved.
