This is the most fantastic piece for your beach house, porch or to bring that beach feel home. The great white whale portrayed in Herman Melville's classic novel "The White Whale" was fictitious. But remarkably, it was based on a real animal. A huge albino sperm whale with a violent streak which had fascinated whalers and the reading public for decades before Melville published his masterpiece. The whale,"Mocha" was named for the island of Mocha, in the Pacific off the coast of Chile.
41" W x 18" H x .5" D
Our wooden whale is all hand finished. He is so sculptural at this size.
Finished in white wash, the distressed wood finish amplifies his surface texture.
We will always cut him with the grain running horizontally, as if he has been in the ocean for decades.
