‘Brown Bear’ color scrimshaw on ancient mammoth tusk ivory created by David Adams. What an inspired choice of subject matter to suit the colors in the bark of the ivory. Brown on brown. This is one of the best wildlife pieces that one could ever own. Note the barely discernible cypress trees in the background. The reflection of the light on the water is absolutely amazing. Looks like this guy was just finishing off a fish as the water drips from his face. The wenge stand also matches the ivory and bear. Cannot say enough about this gem.
