Pirate Ship Battle


“Pirate Ship Battle” black and white scrimshaw on ancient mammoth tusk ivory by David Adams. As night falls, a battle scared pirate ship attempts to outrun a pursuing vessel. Both ships have damage from a previous skirmish and the pirate ship hopes to use the coming darkness to elude their pursuers. The heavy seas will probably help. Adams work on the heavy seas is outstanding as well as the shading of the coming darkness. Love the detail of the jolly roger on the mainsail. Very large piece of mammoth ivory. Not much of this caliber around. Really like this one.
