This tusk from an extinct mammoth was unearthed in China sometime after the rule of the Great Khan. For over a century, artists labored to create a lively and complex scene with hundreds of individual carvings. If straightened, the tusk would be over four feet long. It is carved on more than 80% of its length and throughout most of its radius.
This is one of the two tusks on display at Treasure Island. One has a palace theme, the other, military.
