Product Description

Look at this beautiful hand craved statue of an old fisherman with a basket on his bag in which a small child is sitting while sharing the space with large frogs. He has a large oar in his left hand while is carved in a stooping pose which makes an understatement of the heavy load on his back. Notice the clear lines in the fingers, as it grasps the oar tightly while the half-turned happy face has a big smile. Look at the back. See the careful folds in the robe as it falls after it has been tied at the waist. Even the hand painted motifs has been crafted to accentuate the gatherings of the robe. Sculpting such details in solid ivory is a task that the artist has managed with great precision.

Look at the ivory carving of the woven basket, with large frogs hanging on to the weft. A large fish hangs close to his foot and another frog is sitting on the edge of the basket with the small child. The details on the child’s robe are astounding. This is a beautiful carving in pure Mammoth Ivory that brings to the forefront the artistic abilities of the master sculptor in creating such a masterpiece.
