Handprint Alphabet – N for Narwhal

Now N was prooving a little bit of a challenge, what or what should we make? Many Ns are a little obscure – Nene or Nyala. Others are just a bit too plain – Nightingale or Newt – would just be mistaken for the simpler relative (bird or lizard). And then someone (or many) said to me “how about a Narwhal, that is the unicorns of the sea, you know?! How how could I resist THAT! The unicorn of the see indeed. Wonderful! (we were  —> this close <— to cheating and doing a Nemo). So a Narwhal it was!
