Dimensions: 17" long x 4" tall x 2" thick. Weighs 2 pounds.
This wood fish was handmade by Marc Deloach from cypress he salvaged in the Mississippi Delta. I, Christine Schultz, handpainted it in orange and white acrylic paint. It's the perfect gift for a friend, a relative, or yourself. No two are the same. This listing is for one.
Special Features: This orange fish is almost a foot-and-a-half long. He has a yellow eye lips, gill, and highlights. His tail is black with white stripes and his top fin is white with black stripes. I painted the orange scales with yellow highlights over a black base to create depth. He's made of salvaged cypress with slight texture that shows the wood's history. The two-inch edges are painted to create a multi-dimensional effect. He's a real catch, ready to ship.
On the back: Marc nailed a notched metal piece over a drilled, inletted circle, so that the fish will hang flush to the wall from a nail or screw head. You can see the original reclaimed cypress on back. My signature, Christine Schultz, is there, as well.
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.
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.
