A note on Ivory: Real Ivory is the product of elephant hunting. We are strongly against diminishing any part of nature or living things for the sake of art or our amusement. All of our Ivory pieces were inquired on or before the end of 1960’s. We sell our precious ivory pieces in honor of the elephants and education of the antiquity for us and for generations to come.
