Multiple turtles beautifully carved from a
fossil mammoth ivory tusk point, on carved rosewood base. Tusk shape
can still be clearly seen from the end. Part is a rare blue color. It
is so detailed and
intricate, the base mirrors the swirling patterns in the carving on the
tusk. For me the beauty is also the tusk, carved on the front on one end
and left natural on all other surfaces.

|Hammerhead Sharks carved
is a recent acquisition that is quite unusual - it is a 10,000 year old
walrus tusk from Alaska that has been hand carved (in Bali) on the
top into 20 hammerhead sharks that are all still attached. Exquisite
carving is without flaw...here it is from the back, then the front:
and from the other side:
and on the ebony and inlaid paua shell base
that makes it look like a shark from above. It also has its own
carrying case (hand made; not shown)
