Drew this pattern some time ago but I just forgot about it. It has 89 pieces and only eight species of wood. Also used blue dye.

That is beautiful!! Are the fish all tied together or do they hand separately?
Truly beautiful!

The piece it self measures 25”x12”. It interlocks however the smaller fish has a separate backing. Thanks to all for you comments.
