Michael Binkley carved this original fine art stone sculpture of a beluga whale from venato fantastico marble that is quarried at Carrara, Italy.
Binkley mounted it on a glass base with a napped edge to emulate the icy Arctic water in which these whales live. The whale can be removed from the stainless steel mounting pin. The colour of the marble is very like the colour of these white whales and Binkley polished the sculpture surfaces to a high sheen. The enigmatic smile is evident on the whale – belugas seem to be the only animal that is happy to be fat!I would like more information about this sculpture
