Original Realistic Wood Fish Carvings
by Clark Schreibeis
While carefully studying fish anatomy, color, habitat, as well as artistic composition and design, Clark endeavors to re-create God's handiwork with the highest degree possible of anatomical & environmental accuracy.
These painted fish sculptures are generally carved out of Tupelo from the Mississippi River Delta Country while all the habitat is carved from either Tupelo or Jelutong from Malaysia.
At the World Class (masters) level of competition, all parts of the composition must be carved from wood with only two exceptions: glass eyes and metal for structural support. No real rocks, driftwood, coral, shells, etc. are used. All parts are TOTALLY carved from wood.
