Our latest and last addition to Laputa robot series is Narwhal.

Narwhals are small Arctic whales.
Male has a long forward-pointing spirally twisted tusk developed from one of its teeth.

When I first saw them in a book as a child, I thought they looked quite otherworldly, they were imaginary animal just like unicorns.
I saw a narwhal drawn on a first Japanese copper etching world map in 1792.
I wonder what they thought when they first saw this strange but beautiful animals.
