Sperm Whale by Franco Banfi
Photograph by Franco Banfi
"Ambergris" by Caratoes highlights the sperm whale, the largest of the toothed whales. Able to grow as long as 67 ft, they have the largest brain out of any animal known to exist(!)
Sperm whales are listed as "Vulnerable" on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species and are considered endangered by the United States Endangered Species Act. Like many other large whale species, they were nearly hunted to extinction in the 19th century.

Artist Statement

"I created this artwork to capture and represent the divine beauty of the sperm whale."

Artist Bio

Cara To, better known as Caratoes, is a Belgium-born illustrator and contemporary artist who lives and works in Hong Kong. In her work, she fuses mind-blowing neons with flowing, tenuous linework that has a hypnotic gestural quality. She sees herself more as a space designer, making up inimitable pieces that increase the beauty and serenity of the place and tend to deliver a precise message.
