Mama & Baby Manatees Metal Art Sculpture

Our "Double Manatees On Rock" Metal Art Sculpture is truly a maternal masterpiece. This brasswork features the mysterious manatee and her child floating on a wave crest. Over one foot tall, this sculpture is a heart-warming tribute to mother nature.
The manatee, or sea cow, is the name for a large aquatic mammal of the order Sirenia. It is both found in warm and shallow waters in sheltered regions, where they feed on seaweeds and sea grasses. Sirenians are the only marine mammals, outside of the whale order, that spend their entire lives in the water, and they are the only marine mammals that feed exclusively on vegetation. Their heavy, thickset bodies are fishlike in form, the tail ending in a horizontally flattened fin. There are no hind legs, and the forelegs are modified into weak flippers. The gray skin is completely hairless, except for the bristles around the fleshy lips; the upper lip is cleft into two lobes, used for gathering food. The female has a pair of mammary glands on the chest, and holds the pup in her flippers while nursing. It has been speculated that the manatees, which nurse on the water's surface, are the source of mermaid legends.
Measurements: 14-1/2"H x 6-1/2" W x 5-1/2" D.
