Scene «White Whale Sea Hunting»


The other composition considered to be as unique as the first one is located in the right rock area.It shows a boat with 12 men in it hunting a white whale. All the figures are characterized by the same intense pose. The men’s knees are bent and their hands are put out. All the men are holding short paddles except the one in the front. Most of the hunters have a kind of “snags” on their heads that are the details of the men’s headwear. The men’s noses and chins are clearly seen. Images 6, 7 and 12 have masculine sexual characters. The hunter, standing in the front, threw his harpoon and hit the white whale’s side. The high point of the moment is illustrated by the zigzag harpoon belt.
