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 with feathers and plume mixing with long plaits. A spray of feathers covers the background ivory. The mammoth ivory is a wonderful creamy colour. 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.
