The superstar features of this vignette are the fragile serenity and the captivating freckle pattern on Mercury's tail.
The sleek white narwhal glides through the quiet eeriness of its underwater home.
Is this a lonely existence for this creature or does our narwhal welcome the opportunity to be alone?
I love the brown freckling on the tail of the narwhal. It compliments the brown colour on the "floor" of the Arctic Sea.
Could it be that the narwhal is sprinkling its essence throughout the water as it glides home?
Tony Atsanik has passion for the narwhal.
His narwhal sculptures are a beautiful tribute to this unusual Arctic marine mammal.
