The beautiful sea fan (Gorgonian) is actually a coral, but the color of this one is not coral, it's a watery blue with just a touch of teal. The sea fan is a large colony of little individual animals that grow in a form that resembles a flattened branch, so they are called Sea Fans or Sea Whips.

The graceful "branches" of the sea fan cover the face of this20"x20"x5" pillow, rendered in nontoxic textile paint that has been heat-set for permanence. The all weather fabric is perfect for your deck, patio, sailing vessel, garden bench, chair or tossed onto a sofa in the media room. Looks rather nice when mixed with other coastal designs from Crabby Chris.

To order the color seen in this listing, select "Blue". Available in any color.

Gorgonians are often very brightly colored in shades of yellow, red or purple. Their regular home is in tropical or sub-tropical saltwater. Certain ones can be successfully maintained in reef aquariums; perhaps you've seen them there. They can grow to several feet in height while remaining pretty much flattish.

The fabric cleans up like a dream, with only a spot cleaning, quick hosedown or gentle machine wash if needed. Removable polyester fiberfill insert is machine washable and dryable. Designed, painted, sewn, stuffed, signed and copyrighted by the artist on an island in Washington State. Please enjoy!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to high shipping costs, customers outside of North America will receive COVERS ONLY.
