Closeup, Domestic Tusk
18-DEC-2009 Larry Hill

Closeup, Domestic Tusk

Treasure Island, Las Vegas, Nevada

This is a series of eight 14mm shots showing the rear view of the tusk.
The camera was held as close to the display case as possible without, of course, coming into contact.

When I see this I'm visualizing a noble tossing the tusks down from his saddlebag to a puzzled courtier.
"Here," he says, "see what you can do with this."

Generations of sculptors must have spent their lives doing nothing but planning and carving.

Great job. A restaurant we used to go to had a complete boat carved in this stuff.
