Inquit Woman and Grandchild
“Inquit Woman and Grandchild” sepia toned scrimshaw on ancient mammoth tusk ivory by Heidi Robichaud. Inspired choice of sepia tones for this touching scene which compliments the ivory’s tones as well bringing to mind the old photographs of Curtis. This was done in 1994 by Robichaud and is from the collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. Creative base using soapstone mounted on the wooden base. Someone put a great deal of work in this piece. Note the detail of the patterns within the border on the top of the piece. This one has so much going for it. Rare opportunity to add a first class Heidi Robichaud to one’s collection at 1994 prices!
