Information
A beautiful sculpture depicting a breaching whale, frozen within a moment of time.

Whether rearing from the surface of a desk or shelf, this sculpture is sure to make a unusual display.

Modelled after a Humpback Whale, the species is easily identified by their stocky body and obvious hump.

The head and lower jaw are covered with knobs called tubercles, which are hair follicles and are characteristic of the species.

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!

Made from resin and accurately finished.

Overall Size: 18 x 18 cm tall
