The mighty humpback! This piece is beautifully carved by Master Bone Carver Fumio Noguchi. Attention to detail, balance and realism are all evident in this wonderful piece of carved art. This is a piece that can be worn or displayed - either way it is a very unique and beautiful carving.
Here in the South Pacific whales are treasured as bearers of good luck and joy, they are revered for their speed and strength. Whale pendants are believed to offer protection when travelling, especially over water. If you have had the good fortune to observe them in their natural habitat you will appreciate their gentle nature.
Physiologically they have things in common with humans - spindle neurons in their brains, similar to ours, that are involved in social conduct, emotions and certain nurturing behaviours - perhaps that's why we feel such an empathy for these magnificent creatures of the deep.
These ocean cruisers that can reach around 12-16 meters in length and up to 30 tonnes - these are mighty creatures so it is a real pleasure to have one carved so beautifully for you.
The material used for DEEP DIVER is Cow Bone so it is extremely tough and will stand wear very well if you choose to make it a favourite necklace. The eyes are made from inlaid Goat Horn.

A beautiful and original piece of carved art. A piece for collectors - this is a one-off piece.
