Pirates on the Run
“Pirates on the Run” black and white scrimshaw on ancient mammoth tusk ivory by David Adams. Three armed vessels have a pirate ship on the run. It appears that the pirates will easily outrun the three, as they are seen lagging in the distance. Unusual subject matter for scrimshander, Adams, but he knocks it out of the park. The detail on the prow of the pirate ship is amazing. Note the breaking waves. Very solid piece of mammoth ivory on this one.
