Look at this Zodiac animal sculpture, carved in mammoth ivory. This beautiful mammoth ivory sculpture has been carved in detail by the Master Carver and showcases a multitude of animals in a pyramid form. On the top are the lamb and the lion while the horse and sheep have been portrayed as if they are descending down the cliff. Below that are the bear and the dragon. Each detail has been etched with painstaking skill. Though it is just a small piece of mammoth ivory the Master Carver has managed to utilize every inch of space to craft this beautiful sculpture.
Intricately carved zodiac animals
At the bottom is a fire breathing dragon with its snake like body twisting all around the sculpture. Notice, the tiny scales that have been sculpted in perfect symmetry while the claws can be seen with ease. The fire that the dragon is breathing out has been etched perfectly giving the whole sculpture an amazing look. Don’t miss the snake winding around the pig while the muscular bull is perfectly chiseled with rippling muscles and hoof. The fire breathed out by the dragon seems to hit it in the middle.
The fangs of the snake, the whiskers of the dragon, the feathers of the rooster are all clearly visible and the waves are seen lapping around the dragons claws while the Master Carver has been able to craft the nails and the claws such that it is seen from within the frothy waves. Well-detailed curls and curves all through the sculpture ensure that the detailing becomes perfect. From slithering snake with open fangs and detailed scales on its body to the fat pig and the feathered rooster with a tiny beak, all of the twelve animals have been well-delineated while every inch of space well-utilized by the Master Carver. The complete sculpture is set upon custom carved floral edged wooden stand. The dark wooden stand compliments the white ivory sculpture.
