This adorable monkey sculpture craved in exquisite and precious mammoth tusk ivory had captured the essence of monkeys’ daily living. Look at the frisky monkey hanging by his tail and trying to groom the large male monkey that has a mane. See the precise movements as depicted in solid ivory. Look at the tiny hands of the monkey as it slowly combs through the hair of the larger monkey. The precise etchings and carefully sculpted details on the sculpture are amazing and talk about the exquisite skill of the artist. Notice the action of dangling from the rock, with the tree blurring into the background.
The most unique aspect of the mammoth tusk ivory sculpture is the carving of the small monkey, sitting within the legs of the large monkey. See the facial expressions that portray that the monkey is small and scared, seeking refuge from the larger monkey. The delicate yet intricately hand crafted mammoth ivory carving is set upon a base of solid teakwood. The warm brown- grained teakwood complements the milky white of the ivory, making it an elegant sculpture to behold.
