Whale Tail - Mopane Wood

Whale tails are a frequent sight off the coast of South Africa during the winter and spring months. This wonderful sculpture captures the exuberance of these giant visitors to our shores. Created from salvaged mopane wood, this sculpture glows with the rich colour typical of this dense, beautiful timber.

Each one-of-a-kind sculpture is inspired by the character of the found wood, Boniface seeing his mission as completing nature's work and revealing the animal form that he sees emerging from the grain of the wood. Often the wood is left raw in part of the finished piece, the natural and polished surfaces making a harmonious whole.

All sculptures are fumigated and shipped with a fumigation certificate. Each piece is mounted on a stand and there is a choice of a wooden or metal base.
