The art speaks for itself. Every detail from iris to pupil, feather to feather markings is present in this masterpiece. In this miniature sculpture, the eagle envelopes a proud face while below a wolf looks upwards. The mammoth ivory is a wonderful wood-like tan colour while splashes of green are the result of metal oxides colouring the ivory over the millennia. The back solid silver scroll work is wing like and of high quality hand made construction. The bail is hinged. This is a one-off both in terms of the unique ivory colour and in the skill of the individual carving.
