Color scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact by David Adams. Highly detailed portrait of a Native American beauty in a touching pose. Note the detail and shading of the three feathers, each one different. Also, like the pattern in her wrap as well as the bracelet on her left arm. The facial features are brilliant. This outstanding piece is done on an ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact that was once used as a net sinker by people in the northern Bering Sea area. It is in excellent condition and has no breaks in the drilled holes. The lacewood stand with mammoth ivory bead complete the picture. Very well done piece!
