    Antique Ivory Carved Madonna found at a shop. I suspect that this is a fairly old piece, but I am not a expert.

      it's beautiful! i hope she's praying for the elephant or whatever creature donated their ivory to her!

      ho2cultcha, I agree. I was torn about purchasing this but I thought it was beautiful.

      lets face it this is an excellent piece even curvilinearity (ptosis part of the eyelids)
      nice sloping in the orbitals in the eyesockets

      deep cisele gives a nice shading
      hands are a bit angular, but is part of the acquired position

      the simple stuff is always the best , this gives a good sense of humility or gratitude

      i think you ought to be proud of yourself buying this, congrats Waki
