I love carved ivory. The Romans made great things with it, and here are some examples. The light was very artificial and I over-corrected probably. But see the detail.

Wonderful carvings. Great to be able to
see them in the detail you've gotten for us.

I especially like the artist's capturing of the
loose shirt tops, as careless as the wearing
of them today in casual atmospheres.
