Helmsman in a Storm


“Helmsman in a Storm” black and white scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact by David Smith. Veteran helmsman weathers another storm. No doubt he will get the ship safely through the raging storm. Rare artifact used as an ice tester to determine the spring ice thickness. There was just enough workable space and Smith took maximum advantage of it. Great composition by one of the best working today.
