This whale was carved in ebony wood for the Puffin, an 80’ boat. It was hung in the Puffin's stateroom at eye level on bird’s eye maple along with 5 other bronze whales. The gray whale is well known for its 12,000 mile migration between Baja California to the Beaufort Sea. They were almost hunted to extinction but have been on the protected list since 1946. Their population has rebounded to their former numbers.
