Whaleboats Putting Out


“Whaleboats Putting Out” black and white scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory artifact by David Adams. Not the usual whaling scene here. Adams always likes to see things from a different perspective as can be seen in this gem. Really like the way he uses shadows around the whaler. This tusk was probably used an an ice axe hundreds of years ago in the Northern Bering Sea area. A fine addition to any scrimshaw collection created by one of the best working today.
