Okimono, Japan

This carved object, depicting an egg and two rats, was made in Japan in the mid 1800s. It is known as an okimono, which means object for display in Japanese. These purely decorative items were carved by skilled craftsmen using various materials. This okimono is made from ivory. Elephant ivory (tusk) has been prized by humans for many centuries because of its remarkable carving properties. However, its use has come at a huge cost; the trade in ivory continues to place the world's elephant populations in danger
