Description
With graceful abstract lines, the Chumash artist has captured the essence of the whale. Flourishing for centuries along the California coast, the Chumash culture particularly excelled in the creation of small stone sculptures on natural themes. The yearly migration of the whales must have inspired the artist in this instance. The piece delights the eye as easily as it invites the touch. A charming object that speaks of a people in harmony with the world around them. - (PF.1450)
