This is a stunning whale done in a dramatic brown stone finish. It is made from serpentine stone. The beautiful curves, the motion of the diving whale, and the finesse and smooth finish of the stone made this an eye catching find for me.
The piece itself is large enough to be a centrepiece. Matthew like to carve whales and does a splendid job doing so. They are life like and full of motion.
Signed by the artist, also comes with igloo tag.
