carvingSwooping Crane II
2
Design #cs10b
$93
WE do a whole series of designs which are based on Japanese crests, which were ivory embossing devices used to signify families. The originals of all these designs were circular, but in adapting them to bone, Gerry felt the longer format was more graceful. The wings of the crane form a perfect frame for the long neck and raised head. This carving is left smooth to achieve the tactile nature of most of our carvings.
