“Fin Whale and Schooner” black and white scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory by Gerry Dupont. Award winning scrimshander has used the entire working surface of the ivory in order to create this handsome piece of scrimshaw. This type of ivory is known as “beach ivory” as it has rolled around in the waves for some time and much of the outer surface has been ground away to create a smooth surface, especially on the back side of the piece. However, there was enough working surface for the artist to etch. Nice.
