This fish is an artist’s interpretation of the blue sea bass. The rich blue tones are common not only on the fish, but also the water within which it resides. The spiky fines and the scaly skin are also captured by the artist. The center of the fish is most interesting as it is adorned with capiz shell, which is hand-painted in wavy lines, representing the movement of the ocean as well as the fish. This piece will bring in color and design to your space and a smile to your face.
The basic frame of the wall fish is created using tin, which is powder coated as a black finish. The frame is reinforced using wrought iron wire along the inner edge. Capiz is an oyster shell and the primary purpose of the oyster is as a source of food. However, the by-product, the shell, can be used for decoration. Due to it being a natural material, the natural colors of the capiz can come through as tans and browns underneath the paint.
