Lobsterman in Morning Fog
“Lobsterman in Morning Fog” black and white scrimshaw on ancient mammoth tusk ivory created by David Smith. The fog has almost burned off as the lobsterman makes his way to set his traps. Love the detail by Smith in this one, from the time worn jacket to the lunch pail at the bow. The back side of the mammoth ivory mirrors the craggy boulders beneath the lighthouse. Great work by one of the very best working today. It is from the collection of one of our clients who is no longer with us.
