Large (50x11x15cm) museum-quality distressed Bowhead Whale (Balaena mysticetus) model – Resin ornament, with a pale sea-green and exposed wood effect hand-painted and hand-distressed. The surface of these whale ornaments are detailed for the sake of anatomical realism. This wonderful statement piece is beautifully tactile and It will make a talking point in any classic or modern household, office or cabinet of curiosities. The “immortal whale” and another crew’s favourite and the “whale par-excellence”.

The bowhead is named after its characteristic massive triangular skull, which is used to break through Arctic ice. Other common names of the species are the Greenland right whale or Arctic whale. American whalemen called them the steeple-top, polar whale and Russia or Russian whale. The bowhead has the largest mouth of any living animal representing almost one-third of the length of the body, the longest baleen plates with a maximum length of 4 meters (13.1 feet) and maybe the longest-lived mammal of all time, with the ability to reach an age of up to 300 years.

This Bowhead whale model could be rested as it is on a surface or hanged onto a wall using the pre-drilled holes on its side. The model is a three-dimensional figure that has a flat side for ease when hanging. Each piece is unique and slightly different from any other made by the same process.
