The clown fish is one of the most iconic saltwater fish in the world. The artist wanted to make sure to capture this fish and all of what makes him stand out; therefore, instead of just a solid orange, the orange portrayed in varying shades to signify the variation one would see when up close to the fish. The scales of the Clown fish is enhanced by using capiz shell throughout the body of the fish, so when one hangs this fish up it will reflect and bounce the light in different ways.
The basic frame of the wall fish is created using tin, which is powder coated as a black finish. The frame is reinforced using wrought iron wire along the inner edge. Capiz is an oyster shell and the primary purpose of the oyster is as a source of food. However, the by-product, the shell, can be used for decoration. Due to it being a natural material, the natural colors of the capiz can come through as tans and browns underneath the paint.
