Back again....and this time to show off my last x-mas present from 2005...i just received it in the mail and i LOVE it!!! it is an antarctic scrimshaw cue ball...a woman who has spent much time on the ice, tina white, does these and is a fantastic artist...i just got mine last week and had to show it off...there is a link to see more of tina's work on the right side of my blog where different websites are listed...you really should see what she does...it is one of a kind and extremely beautiful!!! enjoy the shots... the one above is the portion of the cue ball where the continent has been etched...isn't it incredible...and of course i asked for the j.r.r tolkien quote..."not all who wander are lost"...which i pretty much live my life by :)
here's a closer look at the quote...plus you can just see the south pole dome and "pole" peeking out from below the quote...i love this cue ball :)
this is a great shot of an adelie penguin and scott's hut...the woman is amazing...doncha think!
and last, but not least...one of my favorite pictures ever taken while i was on the ice...the adelies in a line..one up, the next on its belly, the next up on its feet and the last down on its belly...i love this shot...and it looks fantabulous on my cue ball....so again...go check out tina's scrimshaw work...she is an incredible artisan...buy her stuff...thanks again tina...what a cue ball!!!!!
