Whale: Gray/Dreaming

Wood Sculpture

Created by Dona Dalton
Some mythologies say the whale is the world; in this whimsical sculpture a figure travels in a boat atop a migrating gray whale, imagining what’s ahead. The cedar whale is cut and shaped on a band saw and sander, and the poplar figure is carved using a rotary tool. Colorful layers of latex and enamel paints bring the piece to life and reflect the artist’s love of animals and toys.

Each is unique and will vary.
