Digitally enhanced and placed on an antiqued page background. The whales are sperm whales, a bowhead whale and a narwhal. I love how the artists have given each whale a little bit of personality. Serious, but kind of playful at the same time. Did you know that the narwhal's tusks are really long teeth? Scientists aren't sure why they have the long teeth, though it is the male narwhal that possesses this long tooth, so they think it might be a way for the narwhal to display his manwhaliness to the female narwhal. All of these whales have been taken from antique natural history scientific illustrations and digitally enhanced for clearer illustrations, deeper colors and sharper lines.
