Bubinga with Ancient Mammoth Ancient Walrus Tusk Ivory Nameplate
Black and white scrimshaw on ancient mammoth ivory by David Smith. Award winning scrimshander, Smith, has outdone himself with this stunning piece. You can almost feel the extreme cold that Anana must be experiencing. The rich fulness of the fur perfectly frames her beautiful face. What a creative composition! The back side depicts two salmon as seen in Northwest tribal art. Also, take a minute to admire the complicated inlay work and design of the stand itself. A work of art. Everything works in this outstanding piece. It will be the focal point of a serious scrimshaw collection. There are many people who do scrimshaw today, but only a scant handful that work on this level.
