These fins and tails are collections in the fish’s closet. They are all one of a kind. Once hung on the wall as part of a specimen display for the fish that transferred human-made words into a revelation, the fins and tails are now independent individuals with free will.

Due to the unique nature of handmade objects, each work is unique to its shape, size, and finish. The length of the chains can be customized by cutting the chain with a pair of scissors. Fish Tales can be worn as necklaces, used as keychains, hung on the wall etc.
