I started with a fish because I knew my nephew liked colorful fish. Than I needed an appropriate setting for it. Now I call it my lost treasure because I’m sure my ship has sunk.

This is a wonderful carving. I will never understand how carvers produce works like this. The talent it takes to do something like this is truly a gift.
Thanks for the post. The colors and detail on the piece are simply outstanding. I am sure your nephew will love this.
