Mother Sea Otter & Pup

By Karen Zunie

Animal: Otter, Material: Marble
This offering is sold.
A dedicated mother sea otter sees to it that her pup is well-taught to hunt for abalone. She'll show the adorable baby how to use rocks to pry open the shells that contain one of their favorite foods. Karen Zunie's delightful sea otter and pup depict this important life lesson. Each water creature is expressive in personality conveyed through turquoise inlaid eyes. Etched details in the rich marble showcase furry bodies. Incised paw pads are a sweet touch. They each hold a miniature cherished abalone shell in their forepaws, which in nature are very agile. They can rub, twist and pull with a great amount of strength. The forepaws have retractable claws too. The palms have tough pads that assist with gripping. Together they measure about 3 1/4" long, 1" wide and 1 1/2" tall.
