I imagine this tusk standing above my fire place at my home & i want to cry that i don’t have enough money to buy it.
I didn’t tell nothing about the subject that the master carver choose to carved on this unique Tusk – “The 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac“.

I am one of the fans of all the idea of the Zodiac  –  I am in love with the Carving but not just with the shape – I like what it symbolized as well…

The Western zodiac is based on the 12 Gregorian signs of zodiacs based on the Solar year, while the Chinese astrology is established on the lunar calendar with a 60 year cycle. They are completely different and do not match on any given point.
