This gorgeous whale is carved from a single piece of Copal wood and meticulously painted in hues of aquamarines, turquoises, blues and teals with very small golden dots - the colors of the ocean. It is gemmy in appearance. The colors are off-set by deeply carved white with black throat groves. The carving is fluid, graceful, and just beautifully painted.
It's a rare find.
Approx. 7.5" nose to tail, x 7.5" wide (fin to fin) x 2.5" high.

Signed on the lower fin, by Guadalupe and Gil Santiago.
