Product Description

New England Folk Art Whimsical carved wood Sperm Whale wall sculpture, early to mid 20th century. The artist used the knots and grain of the wood to form an eye and give movement to the whale's tail. Two old rusted mounting nail heads are still in the whale, broken off from the back. Worn black painted finish that we cleaned and waxed to brng out the wonderful old surface patinaa. A small crack is in the tail, probably created when nailed to the wall. We've added a wire on the whales back for hanging. Measures 30" long by about 7" tall and 1-1/2" thick.
