This Sooka bronze Mako Shark Jaw is fitted on a custom black pedestal made of wood and iron. It is a true one on one life-sized sculpture. The bronze has been polished which gives it its golden glow, and each tooth has been welded on by hand with much precision.

The Mako Shark

It is widely known that sharks are hunted by the world’s largest predator: humans. Our decisions these last few decades have made that sharks populations are becoming more vulnerable as the moments pass by. The Mako Shark is symbolic of the many sharks that are impacted on a daily basis. But since the Mako Shark is one of the fastest sharks in the ocean, it is also one of the most sought after shark to hunt among trophy fishermen. With our polished bronze jaw, we want to show that the shark is just as majestic and impactful in the form of a bronze sculpture as caught on a fishing hook.

About the collection

This sculpture is part of our Eternity of Remarkable Species collection where we capture the astonishing beauty of endangered animals in a static state. For this collection, we source species that are endangered or threatened by human impact. We want to put these species in a shining spotlight to raise awareness of their vulnerability, and beauty, at the same time. With this collection that we call the ‘Eternity of Remarkable Species’, we capture timeless species that are facing extinction in the form of bronze sculptures. The astonishing fleeting beauty of these endangered animals is solidified into a static, eternal state of bronze, welded at over 2000 degrees Celsius. Just as enchanting, less of an impact.

All of our bronze sculptures, including this bronze Mako Shark Jaw, are made from upcycled metals such as old pipelines. Our craftsmen and women collect this scrap waste which they then put them in an oven at very high temperatures. Next, once the scrap waste pieces melt, the new raw material is ready to be used. We then use this virgin material to make our bronze sculptures. As bronze is a very eco and labour intensive material to mine, we feel it makes much more sense to reuse the material that has already been created than to extract it – again. By doing so we are trying to close at least one waste loop.
