Uncle Charlie


“Uncle Charlie” black and white scrimshaw on ancient mammoth tusk ivory by David Smith. One of the very best working today, Smith’s stipple style of scrimshaw¬† is unsurpassed. The weathered face of this ancient mariner tells it all. He has spent a lifetime on the water and has the tales and wisdom of someone who has seen it all and then some. Yet, there is a warm expression that comes across as well as a sense of bemusement. One of the most striking scrimshaw portraits that one will ever see.
