For the very good reason of saving the many elephants that were needlessly being slaughtered to only obtain the elephant's ivory tusks, elephant ivory was banned world wide in the 1970's. In replacement of the banned elephant ivory, genuine Mammoth Ivory became the only ivory for art allowed. Since the animal has been extinct for over 10,000, you may wonder were the ivory comes from. Many Mammoths roamed through some of the coldest parts of the Northern areas of the world, including North America and Siberia. The cold and ice contributed to their preservations and finding them for many reasons including the huge long ivory Mammoth tusks. Since the tusks are very big, growing up to 16 feet long, one animal gives two tusks that will produce numerous pieces of ivory sculptures and artworks.

Although it is wonderful to be able to enjoy the uniquely exquisite beauty of the Mammoth Ivory that is all due to their extinction; but the flip side of this is that with the mammoth being extinct, there is going to be a limited amount of ivory for artists to create their highly delicate crafted works with. This is the precise factor as to why mammoth ivory is so precious and many times very costly for those of us to purchase. The excavation of the extincted Mammoth is also a costly process, along with it being a delicately hand crafted works of art, owning a mammoth ivory piece of art or sculpture is an experience of a life time. Consider your investment being very well worth the money being spent on what ever piece that you may choose.

These beauty's of art can be inlaid with various grades of gold, silver, and many other precious gems. With the many variational sizes and styles of mammoth ivory art works, you will surly be able to find a piece of art made of ivory to fit your budget.
