Hippo Carving

Recommended Posts

Commissioned piece out of tusk. First animal Ive carved that I havent seen. Im really impressed with the tusk, the colours in real life are superb, it shows some translucence and is chatoyant in the right light, it also took a marvellous polish. Im very happy with it. Took about 12 hours.

 

Funnily the black core of the tusk just happened to end up at the hippos rear..... work with the tusk they say haha.
