This cute rat netsuke is made of mammoth ivory and is quite detailed. Tusks of the extinct wooly mammoth are mined in Alaska and Siberia and the ivory is highly sought after.

The ivory is a natural ivory. Because the tusks have been in the ground for 10,000 - 40,000 years, they have absorbed minerals so that the outer part of the tusk may have brown tones.

This rat netsuke is quite detailed and obviously carved by a true craftsman...
