Ivoires

Author(s): Manon  Potvin

€ 8.00 tax included

It is rare for a material and its art to be so fused that they are designated by the same word. That is the privilege of ivory, animal by origin, everlasting in time, as much a part of household utensils as impressive liturgical objects and symbols of political power. Over and above the spontaneous joy their color and luster provide, the ivories presented here in chronological order are worth the effort of delving into detail on their shape and ornamentation.
