“Harambe” black and white scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact by David Smith. Most will remember the tragic incident at the Cincinnati zoo. Scrimshander Smith has captured the regal spirit of this magnificent western lowland gorilla, commonly known as Silverback gorillas. Harambee is a Kenyan tradition of community self-help events, e.g. fundraising or development activities. Harambee literally¬†means “all pull together” in Swahili, and is also the official motto of Kenya and appears on its coat of arms. Ivory used as ice axe hundreds of years ago in the Northern Bering Sea area. This one is a treasure.
