St. George Lighthouse
“St. George Lighthouse” black and white scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact by David Smith. Located in northern California, St. George lighthouse has a long and colorful history. Smith has captured the strong gale force winds that sweep across this area, causing passing vessels a great deal of consternation. Ivory was used as a digging or scraping tool hundreds of years ago. This is quite an impressive work. Smith’s distinctive stipple work has never been better. Excellent stand completes the picture.
