Hunting Puma in Snow
“Hunting Puma in Snow” color scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact by the late Kelly Mulford. Alert Puma has just heard something under the snow. See his ears pricked forward. He is going to be eating soon. Judging by his appearance, he must be a superior hunter. Mulford always found a way to use the natural shape and tones of the ivory. Note the way he used the natural colors of the ivory in the snow laden branch. Nice. Kelly created this in 1983 and is from one of our collectors who is no longer with us. The ivory was used as an ice axe by ancient people hundreds of years ago. Rare opportunity to add a first rate Kelly Mulford to one’s collection for 1980s prices.
