Immerse yourself in the captivating beauty of the Humpback Whale with this Kinetic Sculpture; a fusion of artistry and motion inspired by the majestic marine creature itself.

Each bend and twist of the copper wire was hammered flat and textured to capture the essence of the humpback whale’s graceful movement through the ocean waters. Mounted on a sturdy cement base adorned with glistening quartz crystal points, it is a mesmerizing tribute to the wonders of the ocean.

The humpback whale, a symbol of grace and power, serves as the muse for this remarkable sculpture.

To create the mesmerizing movement of the humpback whale in this sculpture, I used a ‘Scotch Yoke’ mechanism to capture the vertical movement. With each turn of the winch’s handle, the whale comes to life, gracefully moving through the air as if gliding through the ocean depths.
