Plethora of Frogs
“Plethora of Frogs” highly detailed carving on ancient walrus tusk ivory by talented unknown carver. This is a frog family reunion. The way the carver has left the outer color of the tusk to highlight the top three frogs is fantastic. Highly polished ancient walrus tusk gives the appearance of a shiny skin as though they just emerged from the pond. The shape of the ivory indicates that it could have been used as a sled runner, judging from the upturned end. Nicely done.
