Orcas are extraordinary creatures. They're the largest marine mammal in the dolphin family, their pods are matriarchal, and they are among the most intelligent animal species (alongside elephants, apes, and oh yeah, humans.)
This work won first prize in the IMMP x Klean Kanteen Orca Art Challenge (Youth category). We are donating 100% of this sale to the organization that held the contest, the International Marine Mammal Project so they can continue the important work they do protecting orcas and other marine mammals.
p.s. And yes, Aria Luna did incorporate real salt in the painting... it is the sea, after all...!
