That is just beautiful! What did you use to make the eyes black? I love koi! They look so flowing on this piece. You do such a wonderful job and I really admire your talent!

Very impressive! Did you know that the largest recorded live koi is near 60” long?

I look at LJ every day but don’t comment often but I had to say that I really like this lawn sculpture! I have a Koi pond I built in my back yard almost 10 years ago and they are cool fish. Your piece of art does a great job of capturing something special about them.
Congrats on a fine piece of art.
