RELIEF DEPICTING A BATTLE SCENE
Dynamic depiction of a battle fought on horseback, carved from a half-segment of a tusk. The open-worked carving emphasizes the dynamic effect and makes the work appear three-dimensional. Jakob Auer also relied on the same effect, for example, in his work Sieg der Engel über die Teufel (Victory of the Angels over the Devils), now in the Bavarian National Museum in Munich, dated 1669 (cf. Eugen v. Philippowich: Elfenbein, Eschwege 1961, p. 170).
