Product Description

An incredible work of art is this one-of-a-kind scrimshaw on ancient walrus ivory from Alaska's Bering seacoast done by one of Americas very best scrimshanders.  Gary Dorning's works are represented and sold in many upscale galleries throughout the US and his reputation for quality is unsurpassed.

The fossil ivory tusk was obtained by the owners of the Russian American Company from villagers on St. Lawrence Island off of the coast of Nome Alaska. The tusk may be over 1000 years old, as it was hardened and mineralized to great extent when it eroded out of the sea-cliffs on the island. Gary took over a year to complete the scrim, and remarked that this one of the hardest ivory pieces he had ever worked on, almost petrified as it was difficult to make it accept the ink. As always a perfectionist, the detail of his colored scrimshaw on this pieces is unbelievable, and one of the best we have ever had in our gallery.

A beautiful piece of fossilized walrus ivory with two wolves in colored micro-scrimshaw. The ivory is mounted on a nice wooden base. The ivory piece is approx. 11.5" x 3.5".  Created and signed by master artist Gary Dorning.

Gary Dorning artworks have constantly increased in value as he is recognized as a true master of the art of hand scrimshaw. Take a closer look, and add a true centerpiece to your scrimshaw collection!
