This art work was inspired by my favourite ocean inhabitant the humpback whale. These ginormous babies can weigh over a tonne and measure up to one third of their mothers body length. The mother doesn't feed during the time she is at a breeding ground, and whilst nursing the milk comes from her blubber stores, they are really incredible nurturing mothers!
