Ghost Of The Narwhal – Sakana
In the most secluded depths of the tides, concealed in the swirling, sunless water, rest the bones of the narwhals, bare, and silent in the sand, yet their defiant souls remain.
Refusing to abandon the site of their greatest victories, the Ghosts of the Narwhals, haunt the wrecks of sunken whaling boats, like relics.
Through the gloaming, they rise from the spectral realms to protect their timeworn bones from those that would disturb their eternal peace beneath the waves.
Inspired by one of nature's strangest curiosities, the Narwhal, the ancient art of scrimshaw, and Herman Melville's Moby Dick, the Haus of Boz's Irezumi-themed wave of Ghost Of The Narwhal resins begins with Sakana - meaning 'Fish' in Japanese.
Sakana is a single piece resin cast, painted with a base of pearlescent acrylics and decorated with traditional Irezumi subjects, the Koi carp, maple leaves, and cherry blossoms. The piece is finished matt and gloss varnishes, and signed on the base.
This piece is available from the Haus of Boz store beginning at 8PM London Time (3PM ET) today (July 2nd 2013). It will be priced at £64.99 (around $99).
