In the 18th and 19th century, walruses were heavily exploited by American and European sealers and whalers in the arctic seas between Alaska and Siberia. Like the polar bear, the well-being of these sea giants has been affected by the disappearance of arctic sea ice. The rapidly melting sea ice is forcing the Pacific walrus into a land-based existence for which it is not adapted. Wyland pays testament to these beautiful animals in this epic, moving sculpture. "I've been inspired by the walrus for many years and the evolution from sculpting great whales and marine life was a natural transition and I believe this sculpture captures the power and beauty of this great mammal of the sea."
