WHALE HUMPBACK DANCING SMALL Black Cast Marble
This little whale takes the strength of the cast marble medium to the max, which is precisely what Foot was out to find out. The material is remarkably tough when compared to natural stone, this is due totally to the way the bonding resin penetrates the marble material, instead of the natural crystal to crystal surface join.
This is not to say that the piece should be placed somewhere where it might get knocked over, as it is not indestructible. Yet by utilizing this property of greater tensile strength, Foot was able to produce this whale in the full body, with only a minimal amount of what was actually real coral in the master, to support. The result is as shown.
