Making of a hand crafted wooden mechanical whale

I've named him Wooden Migaloo after the albino humpback whale often seen on the coasts of Australia. Migaloo is an Aboriginal word meaning "white boy".

I made this kinetic sculpture in my workshop in the south of France near Toulouse.
The whale and the waves are made of basswood, the frame is walnut and the base is acacia.

This piece is based on a concept by "The Lost Gypsy".
