Smooth Whale with Plateau

Product Number: 002-630-0006

This is the closest thing to the familiar that I've yet seen amongst our first batch of Roman Kovalev compositions. That's not to say that it even approaches the mundane, it's just that I am at least aware of other pipemakers doing Whale shapes out there, with a similar goal of capturing an impression of one of the great leviathans in motion. Aside from that theme, I can't say Kovalev's Whale is otherwise related to the others, though. He's gone his own way with this shape, with an unorthodox approach to proportions, the "pose" of the gesture (his whale appears to be turning and simultaneously rolling), asymmetry, grain orientation, the use of natural plateau... well, you get the point.
