Our great whale has a NEW elegant black look! This whale is based on the Herman Melville's classic novel Moby Dick, he was fictitious. But remarkably, it was based on a real animal. An huge albino sperm whale with a violent streak had fascinated whalers and the reading public for decades before Melville published his masterpiece. The whale,"Mocha Dick," was named for the island of Mocha, in the Pacific off the coast of Chile.
41" W x 18" H x .5" D
This supersized whale measuring in at 41" long, is a hand-cut wooden whale. He is such a great sculptural sign at this size.
Fished in our Cast Iron Black, the distressed wood finish amplifies his surface texture and the photo here do not do it justice. The warm tones of the wood really come through and we distress so you can see his eye, fin and surface details. We will always cut him with the grain running horizontally, as if he has been in the ocean for decades.
This is the most fantastic whale sign for your beach house, porch or to brining that beach feel home.
Want to hang your whale outdoors all year round, add this listing for him to be cut out of exclusive Costal Core wood and outdoor finish
