The whale is situated midway on the pole.
The whale holds a seal in its teeth (bottom photo).
The photos are from rough to finished carving from top to bottom.
There is a side link to see the Seal figure.

View from the top. The head and jaw are roughed out.
Just below the jaw you can make out the seal flippers
extending to the side of the pole.

The eyes and nose are defined, at the top of the head you can see the feet of the Thunderbird figure. The Thunderbird sits on top of the whale.

The whale painted. Note the blow-hole between the feet of the Thunderbird
and the eye brows.

This photo shows the Seal in the mouth of the Whale.
