Whale Watching

Sarah  Mac

Queensland, Australia

Artist's Description

The Killer Whale, or Orca is the largest of the dolphin family, not a whale after all!
The Tlingit, Nootka, and Haida tribes in particular honour the orca as one of their ancestral spirits, and see it as a symbol of strength and speed.
Killer Whales pop their heads up from time to time, just too look around and an idea came to me of a whale, aware of the sky and taking a moment to see the aurora borealis in the north before continuing on her way with her pod.
This painting is one of two I made with the same theme. (See full description for the other) and are both for sale, contact me.
Acrylic on board. 22×30cm
