52" long x 18" tall x 9" deep
When I was but a wee lad I had an aunt who had an arowana and I was fascinated by it. I mean it had a trap door mouth, large beautiful scales, ribbed fins and a soul patch to boot!
I love repetition and have wanted to make a fish where i created every scale individually. This was a perfect candidate as the scales are large and beautifully patterned with the lateral line of scales adding a gorgeous swooping detail. This fish is made up of 125 individual pieces including 105 individual scales. I also tried a new eye design for this fish with added depth so one can actually look into the eye. Overall I really love this fish!
This handmade arowana fish sculpture is wall hanging, made entirely of stainless steel, colored using only heat patinas and is completely safe to be kept outdoors!
