Black and white scrimshaw on huge bull sperm whale’s tooth by David Adams. Moby Dick strikes again. Incredible composition by Adams on this one. Love the darkness at the bottom of the tooth, reflecting the dark side of Ahab. The power of Moby Dick is aptly seen by the complete and total destruction of the whaleboat with crewmen flying about. The back of this massive tooth features a remarque of Moby Dick deep below the surface after yet another victorious battle. This is an extremely large tooth (1 pound, 12 ounces). Not many that size around anymore.
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.
