To celebrate our first 100 products on the site, we gave our photographer some artistic license to display her 25 best photographs to date. Using Google Nik's Analog Efex Pro software, Wiwid went 'old school' and returned to the medium's Victorian roots for that vintage feel. Enjoy some antique imagery of our woolly mammoth ivory carvings, Inuit harpoons and talisman masks, Ganesha carved into the hilts of Javanese kris swords, traditional Indonesian combs carved from water-buffalo horn... and an ebony human skull.
