Southern right whale jaw bone table looking for a commissioner. Size: 4400 mm x 1800 mm x 850 mm. Glass and whale bone. A one of a kind piece for a board room, wine tasting cellar, or upmarket venue.
Bones fascinated me. The skeleton is natures architecture of a living being. Not only are bones 100% efficient but have a wonderful elegance and simplicity. Whether finding bones washed up on the beach or in the veld I have always viewed them with a reverence, as the more durable part of a life. Bones are a rather sad reminder, a kind of epitaph, of a once living being with its own individuality. This would be a melancholy thought were it not that death is a moment in life, not a moment to be welcomed, but neither to be feared.
All my bones are obtained only from animals that have died from natural causes.
