    Woolly mammoths are extinct relatives of today’s elephants. They lived during the last ice age, and they may have died off when the weather became warmer and their food supply changed. Humans may also be partly responsible for their disappearance due to hunting. Although the word “mammoth” has come to mean “huge,” woolly mammoths were probably about the size of African elephants

    There tusks that have been found are only legal ivory to be sold today
    This carving is large and quite heavy , with a woman a child and dragon .

      That is Quan Yin, Giver of children (goddess of compassion etc.) and her water dragon.

      Everything about her is symbolic! I have a large collection of Quan Yins.

      Also known as Kuan Yin, Quan'Am (Vietnam), Kannon (Japan), and Kanin (Bali), She is the embodiment of compassionate loving kindness. As the Bodhisattva of Compassion, She hears the cries of all beings. Quan Yin enjoys a strong resonance with the Christian Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and the Tibetan goddess Tara.

      Chinese Bodhisattva/ Goddess of Compassion, Mercy and Kindness is considered to be a mother-goddess and patron of seamen. THE GODDESS' NAME. The name Guan Yin also spelt Guan Yim, Kuan Yim, Kwan Im, or Kuan Yin, is a short form for Kuan-shi Yin, meaning "Observing the Sounds (or Cries) of the (human) World".

      Wow Mani, fantastic piece! I love anything carved, and yours is over the top with its carving above, below, inside and outside. The best part IMO, is that it came from a woolly mammoth... Amazing!
