Horses Running Free
“Horses Running Free” color scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact by Terry Nelson. Very rare to see a Nelson piece appear on the open market today. One of the best known of the group responsible for contemporary West Coast style of scrimshaw, Nelson’s work is prized by astute collectors. Her portraits were outstanding, but her wildlife took a backseat to no one, as can be seen here. This was done in the mid 80s and is from the extensive collection of one of our clients who is no longer with us. You won’t see a Nelson wildlife piece like this again. Simply great work!
