This whale was carved by Alex Tsethlikai from bowlerite which comes from recycled bowling balls...who cool! The material is a bit translucent which gives it depth. The eyes are inlaid turquoise and jet.

Whales are the largest mammals on Earth, and the blue whale is the largest animal on earth. Whales have huge brains and some scientists think they are smarter than humans. They have their own language that sounds like songs to us and can communicate over great distances. Many of them travel in groups, hunting together and protecting one another. They are associated with wisdom, community, and intelligence.
Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal. Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
