Miniature Ivory Carvings

There's this shop that's been around for generations. Ivory imports are now illegal, so once they clear their existing stock, they are done. It also makes me feel less guilty about buying these miniatures (1 inch by 1.5 inch) that are about as big as a postage stamp. The details are what make these miniatures. The horse has a gold saddle and you can see every skin crease and hoof on the animals, giving them a life-like appearance.
