Title: Dusty Friendship
This Liner Lock styled knife, made by Bob Dozier, has an impeccably crafted elephant ivory handle.
The scrimshaw work almost appears to be in black and white yet with subtle color changes the shades of brown add warmth. The scene here depicts a charging elephant stirring up a cloud of dust that startles a cattle egret into flight. The stampeding elephant and the bird have a symbiotic relationship. As the elephant stirs up dust, insects also rise up and are found by the egret to be an accessible source of nourishment.
