Re: Ivory "Sculpture" Not Art

Just recently China has announced the banning of ivory made objects of collectible art and made laws condemning any kind of ivory made product.

Late is better than never however their(China) desire for Rhino hair off of the head of Black and also the White Rhino remains to be dealt with.

To sculptors who are not concerned I say to you please be concerned. By the way what great sculpture was ever made with ivory? The answer is none because with ivory it is a trinket shop and gift shop item tourists buy, not anything to do with great art by a great artist.

Great art by a great artist is a noble goal!
