3 1/2" tall and 6 1/2" wide, this gourd has a fish and shell theme. The designs are all connected...three fish and three shells intertwine to create the under sea illusion. The design is painted with acrylic. The gourd is opened, painted black inside, and the opening is adorned with small flat abalone beads. It is signed,titled, and dated on the bottom, and has been sprayed with clear acrylic for protection.
