The poor little guy looked silly with no horns and a massive curly hairdo ;-D
He certainly had once ivory horns, but my kyratisation's ethic doesn't allow killing an elephant to take off his tusks...
White polymer clay tinted with coffee did the job for his prosthetic new horns!
A little touch of black permanent marker on the bright bronze spots, a slight oily wipe... et voilà, ready to join my sparrow and monkey penwipes, previously posted!
Unmarked, 11cm long, 5.5cm high, the brush is in as new condition. Dating early 20th century.
He is even anatomically correct! ;-))
