It’s the largest sculpture he’s ever created; a 50-foot long, 4,400-pound Humpback whale. Local sculptor Stephen Kesler (aka Tusk) has worked for months to fabricate the sculpture, along with a 20-foot calf.
These whales will be one of the first things guests see as they walk into the Aquarium. Stephen, with the assistance of his brother Dan Kesler, knew the biggest challenge would be getting the massive sculpture through the front doors of the Aquarium. The whale was engineered to break into eight pieces in order to fit through the 6 ft. x 9 ft. door.
