Beautifully detailed Celtic Cross resin scrimshaw plaque set in a black resin chip frame with interlocking Celtic symbols.
Historically, scrimshaw is a nautical engraving art indigenous to America. Sailors on board whaling ships "scrimmed" designs on whale teeth and bones using a sharp tool (It actually was coined a thrifty waste of time). Ink or oil and soot were then rubbed into the cuts and wiped away to reveal the incised image. Tree of Life incorporates this basic process but instead of ivory, hand-cast resin is used, insuring sharp, detailed images from an eco-friendly resource.
