My most complicated mammoth ivory carving with 10 elephants. The carving is done on the piece of mammoth tusk that is 16 inches or 400 mm long. The artwork is done in deep relieve with some elephants almost free-standing. This was very challenging and during the process of carving sometimes internal cavity appeared, but were incorporated into the carving. It made the process more interesting. My special thanks to Marty who commissioned this work and gave me the opportunity to make this wonderful creation. Special thanks to my wife Lei who took this wonderful pictures.
