Hand carved wooden fish created without the use of any patterns. The fish has been hand painted in watercolors/acrylics and sealed with 8 coats of marine varnish that will protect the colors against fading since the varnish has a UV protectant in it. This gives the Mahi Mahi a glass look also. The fish meausres and impressive 42 inches in length, 16 inches in width and is 3 inches in depth. The fish has a glass eye to complete the realistic look. A heavy duty wire has been placed on the backside along with the name, date, and signed (wood burning) as part of DryRiver Carvings.
