This is a hand-carved figurine of a woolly mammoth. The entire body was carved from a solid block of white mammoth ivory (Mammuthus primigenius). The only separate elements are the tusks. These are glued to the main body once the carving is completed. This figurine is set on a completely flat wooden platform. The background is formed by a genuine piece of natural mammoth ivory which is also set on the wooden platform. Please carefully look at the pictures for precise dimensions. The colour of the ivory is white.
