Commonly called an Angel fish, but the real name of the fish often found around saltwater reefs is the Atlantic Spade Fish. Part of the Living Waters Series of Realistic Fish. Wooden, hand carved fish created without patterns, with hand drawn scales. Angel Fish #2 has been painted in watercolors with pearl acrylics added on each individual scale. This allows the natural knots and grain to show through the colors. The fish was then sealed in 7 coats of a high grade, semi gloss marine varnish. There are 2 coats on the backside also. This will protect the colors from fading or damage over time. Measuring 12 inches long, 9-1/2 inches wide, and has a glass fish eye. There is also a metal wire hanger located on the back for easy hanging on any wall. Comes signed, dated, numbered along with its name by wood burning on the backside. Included is a certificate of authenticity that this is an original from DryRiver Carvings.
