The lionfish is also known as the turkey fish, for obvious reasons, and as the scorpion fish because of the vicious toxin that can be injected into anyone who comes in contact with its back spines. The lionfish has no serious predators, due to its defenses. It’s bizarre camouflage is, instead, used to hide its presence from its prey, which are smaller fish. Indeed, it hardly looks like a fish at all and moves slowly.
This piece is made of over 60 parts, mostly from elk antler. The eyes are African glass beads. It sits atop a base of poplar.
This is an excellent example of the handmade antler art made by INAKA. This contemporary design handcrafted antler fish carving would be an asset to any home. High quality custom designed handmade antler sculpture is a reflection of the owner as well as of the artist.
