Rob Foley Whale Carving

Rob brought me a whale carving and mounted it on a nice piece of wood for my desk.

Originally the haddock nape looks like the piece in the middle.  Rob’s grandfather would bury the haddock napes in the ground to let the bugs and worms eat all the meat off of the bones.  Then it would get whittled down to a blank from the pattern on the bottom piece.  Next you have the finished product on top.
