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.
The bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara (Hindi अवलोकितेश्वर Avalokite-vara "Lord Who Observes from the Top", Chinese 觀音 Guunsh-yan or 觀音 Guonyan, Shanghaian Kueu (sy)'in, Korean Gwanseeum 관세음, Japanese 観音 Kan'no, Tibetan Chenrezig, Vietnamese Quen Them, Indonesian Kwan Im, Khmer លោកេស្វរ Lokesvara), is arguably the most revered and popular great bodhisattva among the Great Vehicle Buddhists. It is also used as a yidam (tutelary deity) in tantric meditations.
Bodhisattva protean and syncretic (it can represent all other bodhisattva), embodying the ultimate compassion, it can be feminine in China, Korea, Japan and Vietnam, in the form of Guan Yin.
He is considered the protector of Tibet where King Songtsen Gampo and later the Dalai Lamas are seen as his emanations. This is also the case of other tulkou such as karmapa. Also known as Padmapi or Ma'ipadm, it is invoked by the famous mantra Om̐ Ma'ipadme hum (ॐ मणिपद्मेहूम्).
Chenrézi is the bodhisattva of love and compassion. Chenrézi's poudja aims to develop loving friendship and compassion for all living beings without distinction. Chenrézi manifests itself in different forms: the 10-headed, 1000-arm Chenrézi of compassion is best known: he promised his spiritual father, the Amitabha Buddha, to expend all his energy to free all living beings and not to rest until all living beings were freed from their suffering. If he should ever doubt his mission, 'then my head could fragment into ten and my body in 1000'. When, after meditating deeply and reciting the Mantra of Mani, he saw that the ocean of suffering had still not emptied, then he fell into deep despair and broke his head in 10 and his body in 1000. The six-syllable mantra OM MANI PEME HOENG is the best known mantra of Tibetan Buddhism.
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.
