Ivory And Scrimshaw
Some of the Famous European Ivory
Ivory is one of the most precious things especially in the present time due to its scarcity. Many of them have been kept in the collectors possessions. There are demand for even the things that resembles closely ivory like the teeth of the hippopotamus, walrus, narwhal, and sperm-whale, and the bones of animals. These things have also become very expensive.
The Best Carvers of Ivory
Ivory has been used for making works of art from Biblical times onwards. The comparative ease with which it can be manipulated and its durable nature has always attracted craftsmen of all nations, and the latter quality has led to the preservation of a surprisingly large number of ancient examples.
The Beauty of Ivory Carvings
Ivory carvings are a classic way to show style and taste. These amazing artifacts are famous for their high quality and masterful craftsmanship. Ivory carvings owe their popularity to the smooth surface which makes duplications impossible. Generally they were made out of elephant tusks and the element is tooth. As you know teeth are actually bones.
Because the mammoth was commonly found in ancient times, people
in the regions which the mammoth once walked have been
discovering and trading mammoth ivory for many years. These
days, with the recent illegality of elephant ivory, mammoth
ivory provides an option which is equally as rare and beautiful,
and less ethically dubious.
Antique Scrimshaw Whale Tooth
I'd like to write about a favorite whale tooth of mine done by
the famous, "more modern" scrimshander William Perry. Perry was
born in Oakland, CA in 1894 belive it or not, but his father was
a New Beford whaler during the 19th century.
