Woolly Mammoth Ivory has been used by humans as a carving median and adornment since our time on earth began. This material has a story involving humans from a time in history when “Tribal” life was commonplace. Because of this history it is many people’s belief that woolly mammoth material is indeed more interesting than any other sculpture material in the world.
Woolly Mammoth ivory is better than elephant ivory and does not involve any killing. Our Mammoth Ivory is far cheaper then Elephant ivory so protect our elephants and collect only fossil mammoth ivory!

..Our latest shipment of mammoth ivory carvings has arrived (April 21st 2016) I have sent off more rough to our carvers including a couple of larger sections of full circular tusk. We now have several hundred small to medium unique carvings and more unique jewellery. In any case way too many to put on the site. I have added a few new ones on the site and will add more over the coming weeks. Examples of our mammoth ivory jewellery are at the bottom of the page.
Woolly Mammoth ivory that is of a quality good enough to carve is a scarce resource.
Master carvers that have the ability to produce fine works of art from the mammoth ivory are also hard to find.
We believe we have the best carvers and the largest range of woolly mammoth ivory carvings in Australia.
We also believe that woolly mammoth ivory carvings are a true collectible art form and can only increase in value.
Should any reader want a specific type of mammoth carving please e mail us and we will send out photos from our current range that may suit. For those that collect a theme e.g. elephants, owls, ganesh, send us a request and we will let you know what we have. If you have a special request let us know and we will try to make it in the future.
