Staying Close to Mom

This Humpback Whale with her calf is carved in African Black Wonderstone (Pyrophyllite). The sculpture has a high polish. This gives it a gleaming sheen that is smooth to the touch.

A calf stays close to the mother for safety and protection, often by the belly, sometimes by the tail. In this case the calf is hovering around Mom, close to her tail.

Overall dimensions are 16” x 16” x 4”
