Ivory

About

Artworks and design objects that include what is technically known as dentine, a material that comes from the tusks of elephants, as well as other mammals. The earliest ivory ornaments are human and animal figures made between 22,000 and 18,000 B.C. Since the Paleolithic Period, ivory was most often used in the cultures where it was most common, such as in Africa, India, the American Northwest, and Siberia.
