Intertwining operators for infinite-dimensional representations of the Sklyanin algebra with spins ℓ and -ℓ-1 are constructed using the technique of intertwining vectors for elliptic L-operator. They are expressed in terms of elliptic hypergeometric series with operator argument. The intertwining operators obtained (W-operators) serve as building blocks for the elliptic R-matrix which intertwines tensor product of two L-operators taken in infinite-dimensional representations of the Sklyanin algebra with arbitrary spin. The Yang-Baxter equation for this R-matrix follows from simpler equations of the star-triangle type for the W-operators. A natural graphic representation of the objects and equations involved in the construction is used.
