Love fishes. They are amazing creatures. I really enjoyed carving this netsuke.
The salmon head is carved of walrus tusk and stained by yasha.
I tried to convey the form, texture, color of dried fish. At the same time, I wanted to show the ravenous, aggressive expression of salmon. I like the result.
