Ghost Of The Narwhal - Tako
£64.99 / Sold Out
In the most secluded depths of the tides, concealed in the swirling, sunless water, rest the bones of the narwhals, bare, and silent in the sand, yet their defiant souls remain.
Refusing to abandon the site of their greatest victories, the Ghosts of the Narwhals, haunt the wrecks of sunken whaling boats, like relics.
Through the gloaming, they rise from the spectral realms to protect their timeworn bones from those that would disturb their eternal peace beneath the waves.
Inspired by one of nature's strangest curiosities, the Narwhal, the ancient art of scrimshaw, and Herman Melville's Moby Dick, the first, Irezumi-themed wave of Ghost Of The Narwhal resins penultimate release is Tako - meaning 'Octopus" in Japanese.
Tako is a single piece resin cast, painted with a base of pearlescent acrylics and decorated with traditional Irezumi subjects, the sprawling octopus, and delicate cherry blossoms.
The piece is finished matte and gloss varnishes, and signed on the base.
Display only, not suitable for youngsters, as the horn is pretty pointy!
