Whale Tail Sculpture
Elegantly realised, this beautiful whale tail sculpture makes a wonderful display and will bring the beauty and tranquillity of the ocean to any setting.
Modelled after a Humpback Whale, the tail is cleverly cast in resin with a hand finished patina mimicking natural verdigis.
Humpbacks are powerful swimmers and use their massive tail fin, called a fluke, to propel themselves through water and on occasion completely out of it.
These whales, like many others regularly 'breach'. This is when the whales leap from the water before landing with a tremendous splash.
No one’s quite sure if this breaching behaviour serves some purpose, such as cleaning pests from the skin or whether whales simply do it for fun!
Simple, elegant decoration.
