Jonah and the Great Whale

Jonah And The Great Whale

An exquisite sculpture of Jonah as he swims out of the Great Fish’s mouth. The Orca is carved from Basswood grown on Vancouver Island, Canada and coated with nine coats of hand polished Varathane. The Orca’s teeth are sculpted from the roots of Arctic fox teeth found in the local dump near Gjoa Haven, Nunavut, Canada. Jonah is sculpted from an antique Hippopotamus tooth acquired from an estate sale. The base is an unusually large and rare nugget of Native Copper found on the surface near Sault. Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. This sculpture comes complete with a beautiful custom handmade glass display case (not shown).
