I introduce to you “Seabo”, a very clever Deep Sea Furrie. He swims with ease and can really go deep. He has many friends that never see light. He brings the worlds of dark and light together and adds a great deal to both worlds. He is always positive and Loves his many gifts. He is grateful to be able to share so much. “Seabo” is a wonderful spirit! This guy is a real character! He has a prehistoric look to me. I sanded his fins and beak to give contrast to the furry detail.

He measures 6 1/4” tall x 14” long x 1 1/2” thick

Most of my Aquaknotz are carved out of pine knots but “Seabo” is carved in a piece of Curly Big Leaf Maple. A tricky wood for me to make a Fantasy Fish out of. But I love the results of this guy and hope to carve more in this format. I like being able to carve a fish that is a bit bigger and it has a different quality than a pine knot.

Looks like Seebo has risen from the deep to meet many new fiends and admires of his interesting shape and prehistoric qualities.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I like it. It flows really nicely and incorporates hints of different parts of something aquatic.

Great imagination.

you need to make these articulate, and then have an animator make a movie with them.

Have your say...
