At the end of this project, I accomplished the whaling boat I had in mind when I started. I have learned that patience is a huge key when it comes to sculpting, and have also learned to take my time rather than rushing, which I tend to do. Work in sculpture reminds me of doing a chemistry lab: both require patience and time in order to get the best results. After many attempts, I feel that I scaled the sculpture to the right size, but could have prepared the soap bar more before cutting into it to save me time. According to the WDC, “there is no humane way to kill a whale at sea” because they are huge moving targets. This causes whales to have a “long, slow and painful death”. I hope that this whaling boat reminds people of the global problem of killing whales.
