10ft Koi Fish 3D Leather Wall Art by Azmal 10ft Koi Fish 3D Leather Wall Art by Azmal
These were made for a sushi restaurant in Florida. Two of the three are shown here.

They were created entirely from leather and are heavily formed for 3D depth.

Both are over 10 feet long and required a full oversized tooling hide each for just the body.

They were made by hand shaping the all the details and shapes so no molds were used.

They were painted using automotive paints with a variety of effects like iridescent, hi-lite, sparkle, interference, and finished with 3 coats of clear for a really wet look.

This pic shows them before I shipped them off:

Stunning work! The scope of this project did not sink in for me until I saw this picture, which gives a sense of scale.
