Black and white scrimshaw on ancient mammoth ivory by David Smith. Wow, what a great piece! When we sent this piece of ivory to the artist, we had no idea what would come back. What a great use of the dark tones on one side of the mammoth ivory. The wolf appears to emerge from the shadow all the while, alert and curious. Check out the eye. Beautiful. One of the most creative works we’ve had in some time. Great addition to any collection.
