Quick Overview

I wonder what Captain Ahab would make of this great reddish whale!

Product Description

Peter Chapman of Bent Mountain, Virginia has created a fantastic menagerie out of wood.

His puzzles are movable sculptures; with his saw he has cut the wood in such a way that when you handle the puzzle it becomes animated.

Each puzzle has a surprise inside of it and you have to take it apart to find it! The "key" for the Whale is its eye; remove this small dowel and then take the puzzle apart one piece at a time.

Each puzzle is signed and comes with an artist statement.

Paduak (a rich, reddish-orange) wood; Approximately 10 in. from nose to tail.
