Marty's original green wax carving of a Hand Fish Charm is pictured here. This whimsical fish is intricately detailed and completely solid and three dimensional. It is 1" (25 mm) long, and 3/4" (19mm high) and it can stand freely on its lower fins. The Hand Fish will be cast in sterling silver and available by the end of August. Pre-orders are welcome.
In March of 2020, the smooth Handfish was declared extinct. Once a common reef fish in Australia and Tasmania, the slow moving Smooth Handfish lived in the benthic zone (the sandy sea floor) and preferred to 'walk' rather than swim. It used modified pectoral fins, resembling hands, to move about on the sea floor. It is/was a member of the warty angelfish family but rather than possessing a fishing lure, its frontal dorsal spine forms a crest. The extinction of this unique angler fish is a reminder of how fragile our planets eco system is.
Available for pre-order for delivery by the end of August.
