This Sperm Whale is hand-carved from bamboo and makes a nice decorative statement. Possessing the largest brain of any mammal, this whale is one smart creature. The name, sperm whale comes from the milky waxy substance found in the whale's head and was the reason these whales were hunted; to obtain the oil which was then used for light, fuel and soaps to name a few. Also the largest living toothed animal, deepest diving mammal, and loudest sound producing animal, this whale sure has a lot going for it. These wooden pieces are beautifully colored and crafted from highly sustainable bamboo wood which is known to grow several feet in one day.
