Not too long ago, I stumbled across a photo that somebody had posted one of my Facebook shark groups of an amazing great white shark sculpture, which I assumed to be from a museum. After doing a little digging and Google-ing (or is it Googling?), I managed to find the website of Bill Wieger, the amazing sculptor behind the the artwork. As it turns out, several of these incredible white shark sculptures are available for purchase through Wiegers’ online store. To top it all off, a portion of the sales from these awesome sculptures goes to the Guadalupe Island Conservation Fund.
In addition to be an artist, Wieger is also a shark diver. He believes strongly in animal rights and conservation. Along with the contributions to the Guadalupe Island Conservation Fund, Wieger donates proceeds from some of his other wildlife sculptures to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, and to WildAid.
In addition to his white shark sculptures, Wieger also offers resin shark teeth cast from original white shark and Megalodon teeth. Wieger also has a selection of shark posters available.
If you’d like to see more of Bill Wieger’s work, or if you’re interested in purchasing one of his works of art, check out his website at www.billwieger.com.
