WHALE KILLER WILLY Black and White Cast Marble
The Killer Whale Willy, inspired no doubt from the movie, this piece depicts a leaping whale. They are known for their intelligence, having never attacked a human in the wild, although dolphins don’t rank so well. For anyone interested, there was a killer whale named Old Tom who assisted the whalers who operated out of the town of Eden, NSW. The story is well worth reading. His skeleton is preserved in the museum there, where Foot noted that a few of his teeth were worn to the nerve from pulling the harpoon rope.
