The Prince of Whales is a stately, regal sculpture of a Humpback Whale.  I wanted to bring some timeless, slightly Steampunk vibes to this sculpture.  More than once as I was making this piece, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea crossed my mind.  He is made with dark annealed wire and the emmbellishments come from an elaborate necklace that I reworked to make the classic, cascading chain trail along his graceful forms.  Additional necklace parts add the finishing touch to his fins.  He measures 9.5 inches long by 4.75 inches tall by 4.5 inches wide.
