Wooden, hand carved Killer Whale emerging from the ocean

so beautiful! Superb carving, clean piece of wood inlaid with Abalone. As always, the expression and the design is so unique - truly superb craftsmanship. Every time I visit the artist, he surprises with new designs and it's always such a pleasure to chat with him about them. He is very knowledgeable and is always happy to share stories and history. Carved in front, prepared for wall hanging and signed at the back. 

Measurements: 24" x 7 1/4" x 1/2" 

Meaning: The killer whale is a symbol for romance and harmony as Whales mate for life. The Whale is very family oriented and known to travel in large groups, never to be alone.
