Our hand carved and painted wooden whales are made in our studio here in mid coast Maine, for your home, classroom or office walls.
The whales are only lightly sanded after carving, leaving “facets” to highlight the chisel and knife work that go into their making. All pieces are carved from locally grown basswood, a type of American Linden tree that provides excellent wood for carving as it resists checking and cracking.
From that wood we have chosen 12 whale species that we think illustrate the variety of whale shapes and sizes. Some artistic license has been taken as to scale.
We are donating 2 percent of Mere Whimsey whale sales to benefit The American Cetacean Society (visit website), the oldest cetacean society in the world, dedicated to whale and dolphin conservation, education and research.
