Inner carving concentric ball, is also called Ghost ball. That means only devil s axe and fingers could accomplish such marvelous work. It looks beautiful and exquisite, but requires extreme high technique and long hard work to carve it. This ghost ball is made from mammoth ivory that found in the deep ice of Siberia, Russia. There are several layers of rotatable ball sets in ghost ball. Each layer of ball sets can rotate independently. Each layer of the ghost ball stands for one floor of the heaven, and god lies in the center of innermost ball. According to records, as early as Song Dynasty A. D.960 , there were craftsmen who could make three layers of ball sets. By now, we can achieve more than 25 layers by bare hand.
