Big Bad Shark
Big Bad Shark
Dimensions: 42" long x 8" tall x 2" thick. Weighs 7 pounds.
Furniture maker, Marc Deloach, handmade this three-and-a-half-foot long shark from wood he salvaged in the Mississippi Delta. I, Christine Schultz, handpainted it in acrylics. It's a great addition to any room of your home or office. No two are the same. This black shark has a gold eye and stripe. He's got a white belly, red lips, gills and tail markings. His two teeth are square nails painted white. He's made of salvaged cypress. I painted the two-inch thick edges to create a multi-dimensional effect. He's a real catch, ready to ship.
Hang this fish anywhere--in a dining room, kitchen, kids’ room, over a doorway or stairway, in a bathroom or bedroom, covered porch, lakehouse, or wherever you’d like a pop of color and whimsy. One is great. Groupings are even better.
On the back: My husband nailed a notched metal piece over a drilled, inletted circle, so that the fish will balance from a single nail or screw head. If you turn the fish over, you can see the original reclaimed cypress on back. My signature, Christine Schultz, is there, as well.
Care and handling: While these fish are fun and durable, they’re not meant as playthings for kids or to last outside directly in the weather. However, a covered porch is fine. We're happy to custom make fish. Just ask.
