Ketchikan, Alaska - Ketchikan resident Robert McRoberts said
that he and Dale Bakkela were getting ready to cut a 350 year
old cedar log into boards when McRoberts stopped the work because
he could see a whale within the old log.

After almost a year of carving, others are now able to see the
whale within too. Except for the tall dorsal fin, McRoberts carved
the whale from one piece of cedar. When finished, the whale will
be mounted on a granite base.
When asked what his plans are
for this beautiful piece of artwork, smiling he said that he
would love to have a nice Harley Davidson or a boat.
