Let's see…

Have a fish:


This picture is very instructive to me. I can imagine all sorts of different compositions, especially with a number of them together.

The Dorsal pattern, just itself, is fabulously developed and actually the black, as cut outs, is easy for me to replicate in curved steel plate. So I might use that in some sculpture. The green color, as it’s very complex, is a challenge, and means we need more than simple powder coating.

As to the eggs, adding straw is a touch I would expect from the famous Beverly Hills restaurant, that sells thousands of fine wines from bespoke wineries in France, Italy, Chile, and California as well as every exotic chess you can imagine.
