Taft Museum's "Virgin and Child", Paris, about 1260-80.  One of the most important surviving medieval ivories,  produced for Saint-Denis,  birthplace of Gothic architecture and burial site of French kings. With her right knee bent to support Christ, the Virgin’s pose reflects the shape of the elephant tusk from which it was carved.   In 1811 following the French Revolution, this confiscated  treasure was sold, and the Virgin’s original gold-and-jeweled crown and emerald brooch were lost.

1275-1300 (Met) This monumental ivory carving is one of the largest to survive from the later Middle Ages. Weighing nearly eleven pounds, the sculpture retains much of its original paint. The tender depiction of the infant Jesus touching the chin of the Virgin as she plays with his foot is of Byzantine origin.
