Ivory Carving, a method ornamental carving, has been used since prehistoric times. Now, it is of course illegal to possess animal tusks and teeth. The aesthetically value of ivory carvings is a very intricate, ornate design. It is also used throughout the world.
This is what spurred us on to thinking about intricate details. Whilst doing the plans for the pristine stylized temple, ivory popped into my mind as a good idea for material. This is also what made us think of using the animal bones.
In this image, the structure of this ornate statue is what I would like to achieve from the environment. If we have a hive sort of thing situated on top of a column, and the whole thing is floating in the middle of a lake.
