Description

The magnificent Sperm Whale from the Greenland Fishery Project is one of our best-loved leather whales and perfectly embodies the awesomeness of all cetacians, and fires the imagination into the world of Moby Dick…

Herman Melville, in Moby Dick, says of the Sperm Whale…

“This whale, among the English of old vaguely known as the Trumper whale, and the Physeter whale, and the Anvil Headed whale, is the present Cachalot of the French, and the Pottsfich of the Germans, and the Macrocephalus of the Long Words. He is, without doubt, the largest inhabitant of the globe; the most formidable of all whales to encounter; the most majestic in aspect; and lastly, by far the most valuable in commerce; he being the only creature from which that valuable substance, spermaceti, is obtained.”
