Description

Inspired by an unfathomably delicate ivory-carved antique in Jacques Garcia’s personal collection, this form was originally used on elephants by India’s regional emperors. Now the form lives as theatrical sculpture in hardwood. The story of the Maharadja is told in feather light proportions, hand worked to an unerring curve. The back is remarkably light and open. The top rail curves in multiple directions. Then, the design becomes more refined – with arms that taper, flare, slope, and open. The legs bend with abandon, and the stump mimics a sheathed sword.
