"Phineas" : Preserved Salton Sea Tilapia : Mixed Media

500.00

Phineas is an actual former resident of the Salton Sea, now immortalized as a mixed media art piece. Retrieved from the shoreline in Salton City, he has been thoroughly cleaned, dried and preserved before being combined with numerous salvaged materials creating a one-of-a-kind piece. Phineas is the first of my collection to be offered for sale, which makes him quite rare. He has been exhibited in public once previously as part of the "Salton Riviera" exhibition of my entire collection of Salton Sea tilapia creations in Encinitas, CA.  

Phineas is securely mounted to an antique oval frame that measures 14.5" across x 12.5" high and roughly 4" deep and is signed and dated on the back. At this point, I am anticipating only one or two more pieces from my collection to be put up for sale in the next year.

I am very happy to answer any questions you may have about Phineas, my other fish or the Salton Sea.

Thank you.
