With its contrast of black and yellow and long iconic dorsal fin, the Moorish Idol Angle is well recognized by aquatic hobbyist and novices alike. This moderately peaceful fish is found throughout the southern hemisphere. The artist took great care on showing the big details common to the fish, but on closer examination one will see some color variations and shading in the paint itself. The scales of the Angelfish is pronounced 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 Moorish Idol Angelfish Wall Decor 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.
