By the way,
Van Ham ignores me and does not send me any catalogs.
Thus, I also ignore this auction house.

Quite right - you'd return to find shards of ivory carnage littered around your display cabinet. The male form, from this hand, looks to have a testosterone fuelled ferociousness about them :evil:

An observation between your model, and the Van Ham one. The treatment of the tongue inside the mouth is similar. It's very difficult to compare this from photos we have to hand though. Perhaps with strong magnification, and some light, it may produce some interesting comparisons.

A good enough reason to visit Van Ham?

As already mentioned, this auction house is ignored by me.

Yes, you can compare the tongue.
I compare the genitals. At the Van Ham Kirin you almost need a microscope to see something.

Aha - it would seem we've got down to that old adage - mine is bigger than yours :D

This will be a strong sale, bargains few and far between, if at all.

I am intrigued to see what the Goho, and Kirin, will achieve.

I wish all of you participating, the very best of luck today :-)

100K Euros for the Kirin was a bit out of my league unfortunately :o

Big ivory figures still making the money - wow. Lot 2251 smashing the Kirin barrier at 165k hammer :shock:
