Swimming Whale with Scrimshaw

 View more work by Fred Kingeekuk



In this beautiful swimming scene, Kingeekuk incorporates a scrimshaw base. Scrimshaw is a technique wherein the artist finely incises a design in ivory and colors it in with ink.  Here Kingeekuk applies his skill at precise detail both in the intricate carving of the whale and in the delicate design of the scrimshaw vignette.
