Ivory Scrimshaw

The art known as scrimshaw has been around for hundreds of years.

New England whalers introduced scrimshaw to the northern Eskimos in the early 19th century. Today the art form is very popular among Alaskan artists, both native and non-native, who use walrus ivory, mammoth ivory, and antler as a medium. The ivory is etched into using a sharp pin like tool and then covered in ink, which seeps into the scratches. Some use colors to create a more lifelike depiction, while others use a more traditional black. The result is a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork to be treasured and passed down as a heirloom.
