Alaska Ivory Gallery has 100's of ivory carvings and scrimshaw pieces by Native Alaskans.

Scrimshaw is decorated ivory pieces that have been etched with a sharp tool and covered with ink that seeps into the design. The traditional color of ink used is black but some use various colors. Most scrimshaw today is done using fossilized ivory that is 1000s of years old. Woolly Mammoth and Walrus fossilized ivory are the most common.
