"Grizzly Bear with Maggie & Jack Art Piece

This grizzly bear looks at home, scrimshawed on a fossil walrus ivory artifact that would have been used as an ice ax. In a small polished area on the back are two birds, a Magpie and a Whisky Jack (gray jay), both used to hang around the hunting camp where Linda played in Alaska as camp cook, they helped keep the place clean by carrying off the meat scraps. The artifact is 2 ¼” wide and 7 ¼”tall.

The base is made of black walnut with studded copper accents.
