Eye of the Whale

One-of-a-kind Gyotaku Print: $750

Image Size: 16" x 16" 

This extraordinary impression was taken from a 17 year old juvenile Grey Whale that died of starvation off of the Westwind Spit on Oregon’s central Coast. I was lucky enough to print its right eye the next day in memory of this beautiful creature that perished due to changes in the climate that rendered the Gulf of Alaska much too hot to sustain the Krill that Grey Whales thrive upon.This piece is a collaboration between my dear friend (and true Gyotaku master) Dwight Hwang who illustrated its pupil, and myself who stood knee deep in salt water, and a stiff north wind, to pull this impression.

Printed on archival MA Mulberry paper and mounted on Siberian Birch hardwood panels with Black Lacquer sides.
