Grey Whale with calf
This carving was entered in the 2000 Ward World Carving Competition which is held every year in Ocean City, Maryland. The Sea Mammals division was part of the Fish Carving Competition and it won a First place blue ribbon in Aquatic Vertebrates and was voted Best in Division. The Best in Division ribbon qualified it to compete for Best in Show and it placed 5th. The carving was mounted on bull kelp for the competition and I later re-mounted it as the competition mount was far too fragile.
