Consisting of two parts, it is 483 centimeters (190 inches) high, 170 cm (67 inches) wide, and 142 cm (56 inches) deep and has a weight of 1,488 kilograms (3,280 lbs.). Both parts are of cast bronze with patina over stainless steel armatures. With its dimensions, “Queequeq – The Maybach Sculpture” imbues strength and surprises with fluidity and lightness.

Its name draws from the character of the harpooneer in Herman Melville’s classic novel Moby Dick. The sculpture is to reside within the comprehensive Daimler Art Collection – as is customary of all art co-operations of the Maybach brand.
