Here on the west coast, we prefer to call it Orca sculpture, instead of the rude killer whale. To be precise, it’s not even a whale, it’s a dolphin.
It’s an original medium size new, recently finished black stone carving with bright polished and pecked back to natural surface. Shaped with mallet and chisels, detailed with rasps and files.
The medium is wonder stone, what is a type of soapstone. The hardness is 2 on a Mohs scale, what means easy to carve with basic hand tools. Polished with standard water base sand papers to 2000 grit smoothness. The brighter spots point chiseled back to raw stone what’s white/gray originally.
The signed and dated disk shape 4.5″ diameter base stone, black granite polished as well. The sculpture pinned and stone epoxy glued to the pedestal.
12″ x 8 x 6″ 32 x 20 x 15 cm 9.1 kg.
