Look at the smile on the face of the father as the young son climbs on his back for a ride.
The daughter is looking merry and joining in the fun. See the joy on the face of the little boy as he puts the horn to his ear while sitting on his father’s back.
The beautiful and detailed motifs and patterns on the clothes talks about mastering the art of ivory carving and painting.
