Bison Turf Battle
“Bison Turf Battle” color scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact by Matt Stothart. These Western scenes are a strong point of Stothart’s long scrimshaw career. He really does excel here. Note the burned out tones of the landscape and the cloud of dust stirred up by the combatants. Ancient ivory used as an ice axe hundreds of years ago. Solid piece of ivory mounted on a handsme stand makes this one a winner. From the collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us.
