Wise Old Walrus


“Wise Old Walrus” black and white scrimshaw on ancient mammoth tusk ivory bark by Ray Peters. Beachmaster walrus has a “been there, done that” look as he surveys his domain, especially his female harem. Really like the way Peters used the natural whites at the bottom to create a rocky effect. Not the usual subject matter for Peters, but he flat nailed it. The outer bark of the ivory creates a natural frame for the piece.
