Whale Tail


1976 by Ross Matteson and Laura DeGroot    osage orange and ivory    10 x 7 x 5 inches   artist's collection

The rich materials practically speak for themselves in this early piece that Laura DeGroot exquisitely scrimshawed with a representative whale form from each major group of whales. I eventually bought this early piece back from the collector who had purchased it at a gallery in Hawaii.
