King Leopard


Color scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact by David Adams. Rarely seen King Leopard depicted by Adams. This cat is a hybrid of other leopards and was not considered in the leopard family until fairly recently.  The stealthy cat is making its way down rocks to the edge of an unseen stream. Love the composition in this one. This is done on a museum quality ancient walrus tusk ivory net sinker. Both holes are completely intact, which is rare. Most are mounted on a horizontal base, so this created a challenge for the scrimshander. Adams nailed it. Nice lacewood stand completes the picture.
