Dragonfish

 

LionfishDriftwood from North West Scotland and Devon, black Pebble from the school playground

The smiling Dragonfish was inspired by the beautifully elegant knotted shape of the main body.  The small curved pieces of driftwood represent the many dangling fins of the lionfish and give it the appearance of flying through the water.  The shiny single black eye with its natural white speck in the place where a light reflection would be is looking right at the observer.
