Item Details
Renowned marine life artist Wyland (Robert Wyland) changed the way people think about our environment when he started painting life-size whales on the sides of buildings in the 1980s. He's been doing them every since, and this one in Redondo Beach, "Whaling Wall Number 31,“ was completed in just 11 days.

The giant mural of migrating whales includes nine life-size gray whales, the artist's first blue whale (100 feet long), plus bottlenose dolphins and kelp forests 70 feet high. Southern California Edison installed halogen lighting so the painting also can be appreciated at night.
