Mammoth's Ivory is easily recognizable by the curved Schreger lines crossing at an angle of less than 90 degrees while those of the elephant intersect at ±115 degrees. Elephant ivory is strictly prohibited for sale.
Most mammoth species died out 15,000 to 12,000 years ago. A last species of dwarf mammoth is recorded in northern Siberia, on Wrangel Island, between 5,700 and 1,700 BC. J.
Our mammoth ivory comes from the Siberian permafrost in Yakuti.
Acala chief of the Vidyaraja, the 5 kings of Buddhist knowledge and magic sciences is the protector of people born under the sign of the rooster.
He is one of the five Vidyarajas, "kings of light", defenders of the five wisdom Buddhas of vajrayana. Acala the immutable or "Acalan-tha" the immutable master, is a Buddhist deity of the mikkyo, he is one of the five kings of knowledge, associated with fire and anger. He is one of the figures revered in the Shugendo movement.
Its symbol is a sword held vertically and around which surrounds a dragon surrounded by flames. His halo of flames supposed to consume passions. It is described in many sutras in particular in the Mahâvairochana- sutra.
He would assume, "against the obstacles, the energy of the follower himself", thus showing the compassionate power of Vairocana. His sword is used to fight the "three poisons": greed, anger and ignorance. With his left hand he holds a rope (pâsha) to catch and bind evil forces and prevent them from harming. Acala has vowed to extend the lives of his faithful by six months and to give them an unwavering resolve to overcome the forces of evil, and as such he is sometimes invoked as the "prolongator of life".
In Tibet, Acala is called Achala-Vajrapani and is a Dharmapala (guardians of the teachings). It is depicted with 4 heads, four arms and four legs, trampling the demons. He's holding the sword, the rope, a vajra and a skullcap.
The Elephant God Ganesh (or Ganesha/Ganapati, also sometimes called siddhi data) is one of the most popular gods of Hinduism and is also widely represented in the Temples of Theravada Buddhism (India, Thailand, Indonesia...) and in those of Vajrayana (Tibet, Nepal...). It plays an important role in tantrism and is present in the Tibetan pantheon where it is recognized mainly as a deity of wealth but also is part of the attributes of certain wrathful deities, somewhat frightening, terrible, secret and fear, discarding obstacles.
The Japanese name of Ganesh is "Shoten" (聖) or Kangiten (歓喜), Japanese Buddhism considers it a manifestation of The Kannon Bosatsu (聖観音菩薩). In Japanese, the kanji is used as the equivalent of the Hindu Deva.
