No. 346

A super pair of mounted Sperm whales teeth. Showing images respectively of a boat entering and leaving a harbour. Lovely detail to the work. As can be seen from the information to the underside of the tooth stand, these teeth are from Cooks Strait in New Zealand. I have done a little research and can only come up with the lighthouse possibly being Cape Cambell in the Marlborough region, the SE entrance to the Cook strait. I cannot find a harbour with both a lighthouse and clock tower. Of course the artist may well be using artistic license and it be fictional.

Stands measure 9cm x 7cm x 10cm. The teeth are 11cm x 4cm.
