This is a commissioned work; a netsuke like elephant made from pink ivory wood with intarsia and tusks made from mammoth ivory. The wood is neither treated nor coloured; it becomes this shiny just by polishing it.

I do take on commissions - I can do just about anything - from time to time, so, let me know if you have any work for me.

Below are a few pictures from the making of the elephant. No mammoth was killed for the ivory; it was a roadkill.

The wood is hard as a pool ball (which is no overstatement; it has been used for making such) and blunts the knife in minutes. If I used all strength I could put into it without breaking the blade I chipped of flakes as large as those seen on the picture. Later on I used a Dremel-like tool I had stored in Sweden and had to wait for to be sent to me, but with that one in my hands the work continued a bit smoother. The magic started to work quite early in this one, and the silvery thing is a drill that broke when the elephant got hold of it with its trunk. For a while I considered leaving it there.Pink ivory was sacred for the Zulu people, and a few hundred years ago those not of royal blood found possessing it could be punished with death.

An English translation of the first part (of a total of three) of Magnum Opus, my book on how to achieve The Philosophers' Stone, is now available as an E-book:

Magnum Opus on Amazon

This is a test by the people behind this release to check if there's sufficient interest for it to be a good idea to invest in the work necessary for making the remaining two parts available in English.

I believe that what I've written is of importance and can be of help for many people, therefore I would like to ask you to help spread the word of this book, in social media and real life - if you find it worthy. Your effort can be what makes the difference.

Please do not forget to review the book on Amazon when you have read it.

"In this practical handbook renowned and prolific Swedish artist Max Magnus Norman shares some of his personal story about the discovery of a method for recovery and optimization of body and mind for personal greatness, consisting of special physical practices, diet and the healing use of natural hallucinogenics. A method in which the first step is to heal, cure and unite mind and body completely, and the second is to function as a guide on the path towards the spiritual enlightenment known as The Philosopher's Stone."

Below is a spread from the Swedish version of the second part of the book.

Den svenska versionen av boken finns tillgänglig här.

You can buy single prints for your own use or large quantities for hotels and restaurants etc. The prints are numbered and limited to 150 copies per motif.

Jag signerar de första trycken. Kvalitén är snudd på litografisk och på vissa sätt blev de till och med bättre än originalen. Det går nu att beställa tryck från alla målningar gjorda 2015 och senare. Trycken kostar från 500:- styck plus frakt.

Det går lika bra att beställa enskilda tryck för privatpersoner som för konstföreningar, hotell och restauranger att göra stora ordrar. Trycken är numrerade och begränsade till 150 exemplar per motiv.
