Dyremat

Blubber in Grytviken

Blubber in Grytviken

The grooved bukspekket peeled by a fin. In the belt is seen leather sheath containing the grindstone he used to hold the hockey stick-shaped flensekniven sharp as a razor. In the back pocket sees tobacco box.
The dark and slightly yellowish color in the outermost layers may indicate that this whale is something burning, you. to forråtnelsen in progress. This could lead to lower grade oil [my comment].
