Although this was already posted on Brothers Brick, I just had to feature Ryan Rubino’s model for its sheer awesomeness!This is a truly amazing sculpture!

One of the most fascinating forms of predation in the natural world has never been seen by man but is often depicted in art. The contest of survival between the Sperm Whale (Physeter macrocephalus) and one of its favorite preys the Giant Squid (Architeuthis dux) has long been of interest to me.

Both the Sperm Whale and the Giant Squid were built superbly in their classic dominance as King of the Sea. You really have to look at the full set on his Flickr Photostream at the original size to fully appreciate the true art with which he crafted this. 🙂
