The humpback whale migrates in the winter months to the warm waters of Hawai’i and is one of the most magnificent creatures in the ocean. They don’t actually have a hump on their back, the name comes from the large hump that forms when they arch their backs before making a deep dive into the ocean. A large school of humpbacks can be seen during whale watching tours off of the coast of Maui and O’ahu. This design is made from Rosewood, Pheasant Wood and Ash Wood. The Hawaiian humpback symbolizes peace, harmony and prosperity.
This item is a two piece set which includes two humpback whales (1 large & 1 small) and may be grouped together with our other aquatic designs in order to create a theme. You can also pair them with one of our beautiful coral scenes and expand on a sea life theme.
*The wood types used for this design vary upon availability and the photos above are examples of the different possible color/wood combinations you may receive. You are welcome to request a particular color and we will always try to accommodate your needs.
Each piece of wood is meticulously hand contoured and carefully assembled to create multi-dimensional artwork. The beauty and uniqueness of our artwork comes strictly from the natural colors and grains of various wood types. No staining or painting is involved, only an oil finish is used to ensure the beauty as the wood ages. Wood burning is used for small details such as the scales of a fish or turtle, etc. Each piece of artwork is stamped on the back with our Le Family logo.
*Please note that this is a one-of-a-kind piece of art. The shape and workmanship are exactly as shown here but because of the different grains and shapes in the exotic woods employed, there will always be some variation in color.
