It is kind of a weird thing I do not get it.

It is cool how the carving tells a story. Are all the things in the the picture part of this art piece?

The tusk carving seems to tell a story. The story almost seems like the climax of the story should be at the top of the tusk, and the start should be at the bottom, like the story is rising with the tusk. I don't see how all the pieces are tied together. But the tusk is an amazing price of cultural art.

I wonder what the story is about, it would be a lot Better to see this in person than on a picture
