Miller Kingeekuk – Large Scrimshaw Seal
EXHIBITION:BONE & STONE: An Alaskan Group Exhibition
This style of seal was one developed by Miller’s grandfather, Floyd Sr., and so is one distinctly associated with the Kingeekuk family as it has been passed down through the generations. Extremely delicate lines of scrimshaw are built up on the surface of the ivory to create a realistic impression of spotted fur, soft muzzle and glossy eyes.
It is an innovative method of scrimshaw that take much skill and practice to master.
