“The mammoth scene-2”

This new mammoth scene is the biggest one I ever made. It was possible because I came across this piece of mammoth ivory bark. This wonderful piece is 17 inches (430 mm) long and 4 inches (100 mm) wide but only about 3/8 inch (10mm) at the thickest and came from Alaska. It has a very interesting variety of colors from light brown to dark with some blue and green strikes. Such material is highly sought by knife-makers, but I couldn’t let such fine specimen of mammoth tusk fragment to be chopped into pieces. It undoubtfully used to belong to very mighty bull mammoth, like one of the “fighters”. I carved an entire mammoth group there and it has everything: The fighting males and exited females and two curious and a little bit scared babies. To add to three-dimension effect, I inserted the tusks and my bas-relieve looks much dipper.

I offer this wonderful mammoth ivory carving for sale. Feel free to contact me for the price and shipping information.
