Whaling is a practice that has repeatedly brought several species of these huge marine mammals to the brink of extinction. This is a horrible practice and with this engraving I want to bring it to light. Not only that, but the atrocity of bloodshed also contrasts with the beauty of the whale, whose iconic fin is in everyone’s imagination causing fascination.
Drops of dried blood stand out on the white of the precious paper. Fake blood wouldn’t have symbolically the same power as the presence of my real blood which makes the artwork even more unique.
