Cape Hatteras Light
“Cape Hatteras Light” color scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory by David Smith. Simply perfect choice of subject matter for this shape of ivory. Smith’s signature stipple style of scrimshaw is perfect for this stately lighthouse that opened in 1803. Note the shadow on the right side of the lighthouse as well as the reflection on the tower. The more one studies this the more details emerge. Excellent opportunity to add a fine work to your collection created by one of the very best working today.
