Chinese Mammoth Tusk carving
Date: 2009/Oct/23 Fri
This 35,000 year old mammoth tusk depicts an entire community carved into the ivory. Created by Chinese Master carvers, this project took at least 100 years to complete. It was begun over 500 years ago. Today, the tusk sits on a massive hand-carved piece of ebony wood and the entire display is 5 feet long and 3 feet high.
