    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

    Their tusks that have been found are only legal ivory to be sold today

    This piece actually curves into a semi circle . These were acquired from a Art Gallery closing in New York about 20 years ago

      Obviously it belongs to Mani, almost as beautiful and wonderful as she is. We all appreciate special things and the same should go for special people. Our dance is coming Mani.

      Like a nice spring day yesterday and overnight now about 6 inches of snow, what a turnaround. Another prize for your collection. Recently a tv news about cloning a mammoth. Gorgeous piece Mani. xoxo

      Another Beauty Mani! What I love about your collection, is that each and every one has its own flavor - be it the style of carving, the shape or subject matter. On this one, besides the beautiful carving, I love the tree bark effect which makes it appear as if it was carved out of a tree branch.

      Was watching Expedition unknown last night about mammoth ivory and thought about your pieces :)
    14. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
      Mrstyndall did they give any good information about them ? :-) I always like to learn something
    15. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
      Thank you Rick and what a kind remark :-) Always so nice to see you and I appreciate your comment . I agree it looks like a tree to me too :-)
    16. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 2 years ago
      Manikin, not a whole lot, but was quite a dangerous expedition to extract the pieces. They were trying to extract DNA from some of the pieces. It was interesting
    17. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
      Thanks Mrstyndall :-) I don't think anyone has a for sure reason they vanished lots of speculation on it .
    18. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago

      Oh this is so beautiful! The way they have honored this long since gone creature... immortalized, perhaps, just as their own depiction.

      How interesting. Great purchase, I imagine Mammoth ivory doesn't come up for sale very often
    29. Manikin Manikin, 1 year ago
