The Hairdresser


Color scrimshaw on ancient mammoth tusk ivory by Terry Nelson. This touching piece was created by Nelson in 1990 and is from the extensive collection of one of our long time clients who is no longer with us. It is very rare to seen Nelson’s work become available on the open market today. Note the fine stipple work by  Nelson as well as the detail in the kimonos of the two women. Perfection. The wenge and ebony stand is a work of art in itself. Excellent opportunity to add a rare Nelson portrait to your collection.
