Whalebone Arch consists of two large sculptures-semi-realistic forms of Fin whale mandibles, supported by a metal frame. Hoisted upward, they reproduce the arches/ openings made from whale bones spread in different parts of the globe: from the Siberian and American coasts, to the Atlantic coasts of countries with whaling traditions.
