( Attention: The “white, strong & flexible” material is not 100% water proof. However, a brief experiment in school for measuring the volume, works fine. )

Indeed, it is just the graph of the function y=(x+9)*(x-68)*(x-68)*0.0003+10, rotated about the x-axis. Such math models are common examples for computing the area or the volume of a surface of revolution given by rotating a graph about an axis.
