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.

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.

Sure, I have a lot of plans for other such large scale wall art. Not the least of which a giant 3D leather dragon. I consider these strictly art and will charge accordingly.

Very spectacular, unfortunate that most of the guests will not understand the amount of work that went into these.

Yeah, about .001% of the world could and even less will appreciate that it's leather and not fiberglass.
