This is a self portrait of me as a lionfish. The fins are made of thin sheets of acrylic and the spines are fake plant leaves that have been modified. Don't know where I got the idea to use fake plants...I often look for random objects in the world whether it be in a store or in nature to use on my sculptures. It helps speed up the process(sometimes) and adds a unique characteristic to each piece.

This one took me about three to four weeks to finish due to all the detail stuff, but overall I'm happy with it. The candles are actually LED's and and use to light up, but I didn't anticipate the sulfur-based clay destroying the connections! I recently won an award for this piece so thank you to all who voted for me.
