Native Mother and Child


“Native Mother and Child” black and white scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact by Mary Simpson. Evocative of the famous Dorothea “Migrant Mother” photograph. Strong woman who refuses to give up. Very interesting artifact, probably used as part of a sled runner hundreds of years past. From the collection of one of our clients who is no longer with us. Not many artifacts like this around today.
