Some northern Native American tribes such as the Tlingit, consider the orca whale to be a special guardian of humankind. Calvert Bowannie's incredible orca whale was carved of black marble and mother-of-pearl, with dynamic inlaid turquoise eyes and a drilled blow hole accent. The marble carving is polished to a glossy shine with a smooth feel in hand; the whale measures about 1 3/4" long, 1 1/8" wide by 1" tall at the tail.
