A Half-Sized blue leather Humpback Whale
This one’s half the size of our Full-Sized Humpback Whale – around 50cm in length.
Made of a shiny dark blue leather with a pristine white (‘BabyBuck Nappa’) tummy, she’ll grace any room – whether it’s hanging from a beam or resting on a shelf.
Occasional cuddles are in order.
The Humpback Whale is a Baleen Whale; a filter-feeder, and has ventral pleats—creases that run vertically down the underside of a whale’s jaw all the way to its stomach. When feeding, the ventral pleats expand like an accordion to accommodate a huge amount of food-rich water. Our leather whale has those, too.
As with all leather whales made in the Whale Whorkshop, at the Greenland Fishery, we don’t hide any imperfections – marks, scars or tears – in the leather used to make the whales. In fact we highlight it, to make a point about damage and the vulnerability of cetaceans.
“On Back-Order” means that the one in the photo has gone to a new home and we’ll need to make another, so it’s more like “Made to Order”. Contact Us if you have questions
