About The Book. Praised for the nuance and sensitivity with which it approaches one of the most fraught conservation issues we face today, John Frederick Walker’s Ivory’s Ghosts tells the astonishing story of the power of ivory through the ages, and its impact on elephants.. Long before gold and gemstones held allure, humans were drawn to the “jewels of the elephant”—its great tusks. Length of Right Tusk: Length of Left Tusk: D CIRCUMFERENCE OF BASE: The circumference of the base is measured at a right angle to the axis of the tusk. DO NOT follow the irregular edge of the tusk; the line of measurement must be entirely on tusk material. See Figure B. The curve of the elephant tusk creates the exaggerated sweep of the figures which conforms perfectly to the stylistic conventions of the period. The Virgin's anatomy - her long abdomen for instance - increases the effect of mannered elegance popular in aristocratic circles.
