   Black and white scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact by Gerry Dupont. Upon returning from a three year voyage with a precious cargo of whale oil, the whaler, Wanderer, dries her sails. There is still a great deal of work to be done before the next voyage. A solitary figure appreciates the sight in the shade of a run down storage shack. Dupont packs great detail in each piece. Note the prow of a skiff at the ship's stern. Nice artifact, probably used an a scraping tool hundreds and hundreds of years ago. Professional work at a great price.
