M is for maquette as this manta was the first off, hand carving produced. This went on to make the J manta and the 3 metre Aero manta. The manta ray is one of the oceans most recognisable creatures and as anyone who has dived with these fish can testify to their grace and beauty. Manta rays are found in the world’s tepid oceans and are true ‘aero’ fish. Engineering methods, materials and selected parts from modern F1 Grand Prix cars are used in the production of this sculpture.
