Killer Whale Pod Attacking
“Killer Whale Pod Attacking” black and white scrimshaw on large whale’s tooth by Peter Mayac. Action piece depicting a fearsome pod of orcas attacking a lone bowhead whale in the Northern Bering Sea. This was created by the well known native artist, Peter Mayac, whose work is prized by collectors everywhere. It is from the collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. Heavy tooth is in excellent condition and was probably done in the late sixties to early seventies. Very rare piece.
This scrimshaw is done on a sperm whale’s tooth. Federal legislation bans the interstate shipment of whale ivory. It can only be shipped intrastate (within the state). All of our whale ivory is located with our associate in the state of Ohio. It can be purchased directly from our website and shipped only to an address within the state of Ohio. If one has a relative, trusted friend or business associate within the state of Ohio, we can ship to that specified address in order to comply with Federal legislation. The scrimshaw can then be forwarded it to you and everyone complies with the law. Any questions, email or call us.
