Mamma Bear and Cubs


“Mamma Bear and Cubs” color scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk  ivory artifact by well known Alaskan scrimshander, Dennis Sims. Quintessential scene of mamma bear teaching her cubs how to catch migrating salmon. Best to fatten up during the summer. Sims is at his best doing these types of scenes, having experienced it first hand. His work is prized by collectors who visit Alaska. Interesting mount using antler. This is from the collection of one of our clients who is no longer with us.
