** Derrald Taylor SIGNATURE Orca carving

Magnificent Movement!  Museum quality Carving!

Derrald Taylor loves his Orcas. 

They are high on the list of client favourites in the gallery. 

But, Derrald excels in his depictions of Mother and Calf Orcas.

In Basil and Blue, Taylor depicts a male Orca and his calf.

The two Orcas are captured in an underwater scene where the two marine beasts suddenly veer off in divergent directions.

Is this the beginning of the young Orca's independence?

Or are the two Orcas playing a game of Whale chicken?

Basil and Blue is a magnificent and somewhat rare piece with its Father and Calf theme!

Only Derrald Taylor carves such dramatic movement and tension into his Orcas.

The colours are those of a real Orca,

The skin is sleek and glistens. 

Taylor’s sculptures have toured worldwide. 

They are in countless publications, Inuit art journals, exhibitions, and museums.
