Color scrimshaw on ancient mammoth tusk ivory by Gary Williams. What a cast of characters. Melville would be proud of this depiction from Moby Dick. Talented scrimshander, Williams, loves to create unusual portraits and has outdone himself this time. Love the obsessive, menacing look on Ahab’s face. Almost jumps off the ivory. His trusted first mate and harpooner stand behind him, not knowing where or how their journey will end. The artist completes the picture with a stunning remarque on the back showing Moby Dick, not ready to quit. One of the best pieces we have had on this subject. Very, very impressive!
