Detailed mammoth ivory carving of a turtle group. Half of the tusk isn't carved to show the fine structure of the material and to inhance the artists job. Notice the fine detail on the turtle's feet and back. The group of turtles are all united and it looks like they are having a great time! The turtle has few predators, which gives it an innocent energy. This also increases its lifespan, and so holds the symbolic meaning for longevity in many cultures. This high quality statue is signed by the artist and laid on a teak wood.
