Beautifully crafted sea world life on a large piece of mammoth ivory tusk has been painstakingly handcrafted by the Master Carver. Look at the amazing details of the sea life showcasing the octopus, swordfishes, sharks and crabs that dot the complete scene. With a complete sea theme, the Master Carver has intricately portrayed the natural allure of the sea so well in solid mammoth ivory. Look at the froth of the sea waves that hit the sea animals with élan.
Sea world life Carved in mammoth ivory
Each curling wave and froth is visually clear and done so amazingly. Don’t miss the suckers on the eight legs of the octopus or the broad legs of the crab. The swordfishes and other smaller fishes seem to be swimming in delight. The ferociousness of the shark is aptly visible. Though a large piece of mammoth ivory tusk has been sculpted, each detail is clear and visible with ease. Don’t miss the large leaves in the background and small fishes swimming past the large sea animals.
The most unique aspect of the sculpture of sea world life is the large shelled clam and the tow dolphins. These tow dolphins are swing towards the clam and the crab, while the other sea life is featured swimming in the opposite direction. The Master Carver has been able to craft and delineate sea life in natural way. The large wave engulfs one of the dolphins while the larger one looks on. Another beautiful aspect of the sculpture is that the Master Carver has been able to show the clam and the dolphins just like they actually look.
There is a slight discoloration as can be seen with the brown hues on some parts of the tusk. This lends it authentication that it is pure mammoth ivory. It is due to the absorption of soil minerals in the permafrost as it lay buried for over 10,000 years. The complete sea life sculpture is set upon a wooden stand that has waves and adds to the beauty of the sea world life sculpture.
