A very impressive eye-catcher on which a Balinese master craftsman has intricately carved a dragon and Phoenix. The craftsman's family has been carving for generations, as this skill is traditionally passed down from father to son.

This could be seen as a type of scrimshaw. Scrimshaw is the name given to engravings, and carvings are done in bone or ivory.

THE STORY
At the heart of Chinese mythology are four spiritual creatures (in Chinese - Sì Shòu, in Japanese - Shishin). Two of the most powerful of the four celestial animals are the dragon and Phoenix.

The dragon and Phoenix are the perfect couple in Feng Shui. Dragon is "yang" while Phoenix is "yin", and they complement each other in creating yin-yang balance to harvest successful matrimonial bliss. This celestial couple is the symbol of everlasting love and they being together is the ultimate symbol of marital happiness. It symbolizes that the man and spouse will stay together through thick and thin, and that love and passion will last till the end. They ensure that a newlywed couple will be blessed with both patriarch and matriarch luck, outstanding achievement in life and great fortune and prosperity with many filial offsprings.

DIMENSIONS
The tusk is 95cm long
