I took the boat out fishing,
and didn’t tell you that I went
Then before I knew it
all my fishing time was spent
Some angels pulled me over
and said that I must dock
I wasn’t even startled
so I must have been in shock
They wouldn’t let me make a phone call
just said they’d let you know
Then they said, “ Lay down the fishing poles”
and to heaven we did go
They dressed me in a flowing robe
I guess I’m in the choir
I sing a decent alto
but I can’t go much higher
Well, looks like I’m here to stay,
so you must follow aft
Don’t worry that I took the boat
I did leave you the raft

This perch is 8" long and the batik cloth is 19X14 inches.
Give your cottage, office, or family room an unexpected conversation piece.

Original GYOTAKU are considered a thoughtful gift and are believed to bring good luck not only to fishermen but business people as well. The process is fairly simple: Pigment is applied to a real fish. Then cloth is carefully touched to the fish. The GYOTAKU is pulled and a detailed mirror image results. For details on the process visit gyotakuartist.com. Several images may be made from the same fish, but no two are ever exactly alike. Each piece is created in a smoke/pet free studio.

This GYOTAKU (fish rubbing) was made on batik cloth and is a one of a kind original. I identify the fish, sign each and supply a certificate of authenticity. It will be shipped in a sturdy flat pack protected in a clear plastic sleeve. Please see feedback for testimonials.
