This beautifully hand crafted mammoth ivory figurine of a man with baskets and boy holding a mask is amazingly done. Notice the happy and smiling face of the Oriental man with a beard. He holds a rattle drum in his left hand and a long bamboo stick in his right hand, which is balanced on his shoulder. Don’t overlook the hand painted designs in brown color, giving the robe its natural look. See the accentuated folds on the sleeve or the drape of the robe where the belt is tied around the waist. The little boy holds on to one end of it. Did you see how the bows are tied around the pant ankles? This was the traditional way of wearing pants and the Master Carver has put the thought into each aspect of the figurines.
