Wooden whale

A couple years ago I decided to carve a sperm whale from wood I had lying around. I attached the jaw with a brass hinge because I wanted it to look like an old toy, but I wanted to give it some life, so I casted two half spheres in clear resin, and painted the flat side: the eyes made this way create a lens effect that gives the illusion of a following gaze, giving it a feeling of life.
