Those aren’t wiffle balls, but rather intricate ivory carvings. The artist carved each intricate form from a single block of ivory. The pierced spheres and urns could not be carved by hand but were turned on a lathe, a difficult and precise technique that required great patience and skill. Scholars estimate that one sphere could take nearly two hundred hours to produce.This piece was made for a curiosity cabinet, most likely.
