Wise Monkeys

This unique work displays the ancient wise monkeys on three heirloom ivory poker chips.
Each chip has been hand scrimshawed on a beautiful natural artifact of antique ivory.

The handcrafted case for the ivory chips is made of extremely rare African Pink Ivory wood with inlaid corner highlights of black ebony. African Pink Ivory wood grows in South Africa and is one of the rarest woods in the world. It is the royal wood of the Zulu tribe.

The recess in the case has been overlaid with poker-green felt, while the plexiglass cover can be lifted to gain access to the case contents.
