Val Kropiwnicki - Harlequin Acid Prawn.312.SSBP


Harlequin Acid Prawn.312.SSBP, inspired byOdontodactylus scyllarus(the peacock, painted or harlequin mantis shrimp)isthe third piece in my shrimp series. This piece incorporates an acid etched nickel shell back that looks to old carnival type fonts for its pattern inspiration. Though pale in comparison to the natural, explosions of fluorescent hackle add to the tripped out nature of this prawn.

Stainless steel 4/0 double - acid etched Nickel shell back

Included with this and each of Val's flies are copies from the pages of his sketchbooks that relate to the fly. These pages may include alternate designs, notes made during the creation of the piece as well as miscellaneous sketches for other pieces he was working on at the same time. A provenance package if you will that allows the buyer to more fully understand the artist and the piece.
