Commemorate your awesome catch with this magnificent sculpture! Shown above is artist Gary Caldwell standing beside his 7 foot "Trophy Tarpon". Just image the conversations this prize will generate when it is displayed in your den. Known by anglers as a fierce fighter, the Tarpon is a awesome jumper. When chasing prey they can be seen to literally fly out of the water. Perfect for decorating large blank wall spaces in a fisherman's den or a nautical-themed bar or restaurant.
The beautiful coloration and texture are achieved by the masterful application of up to 6000 degrees of heat and special grinding techniques that Gary has developed over span of thirty years. Light reflects wonderfully off of the stainless steel, causing the color to change with changes in lighting or the viewer's perspective.
This sculpture is suitable for indoor or outdoor use.* Each sculpture individually hand crafted, with no two being exactly alike. Note: the black background is not part of the sculpture. Wall sculpture.
*If used outdoors, the torch-cut edges may develop a light rust patina over time, but the other colored areas will not. In the event rust does develop and you wish to remove it, carefully and gently use a stainless steel wire brush to remove the rust from the edge areas. Be careful not use a wire brush on colored areas, as it will remove the coloring. Not recommended for outdoor areas exposed to windblown salt spray.
