These were made for a sushi restaurant in Florida. Two of the three are shown here.
This pic shows them in a disassembled state (for shipping purposes)
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.
Here they are at the restaurant.
