Melvin Sandoval's smoothly sculpted whale of white sugar stone marble moves freely through its ocean home. The carving has a weighty and silky feeling in hand that is soothing. The soft curves are highlighted by the tiny sparkling inclusions imbedded in the stone. The elusive whale measures 6" long, 1 3/8" wide by 1 1/2" tall.
