HMS Victory in Battle
” HMS Victory in Battle” black and white scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact by David Smith. Nelson’s Victory sails toward the unseen enemy as cannon balls splash around her. She has taken a few hits in her sails, but not anything serious. Without a doubt, this will be yet another feather in Nelson’s cap. Interesting artifact here. Not sure just how it was used, the the ver tip shows some scoring marks. Bubinga and mammoth ivory stand complete the picture.
