Color scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory by Matt Stothart. Veteran scrimshander, Stothart, seems to get better and better. His work has been prized by knowing collectors for decades. This is a perfect example of his first class work. Note the way the color in the ivory seems to blend seamlessly into the rocky platform upon which the wolf watches. Very nicely done. Exceptionally large piece of ancient walrus tusk ivory, by the way. Impressive stand completes the picture. Weight: 1 pound, 6 oz.
