Bright and colorful, this playful gecko will add a spark of life to any space. With its tightly curled tongue and wide-open eyes, this gecko is on the move. Down the center of the gecko the artist uses capiz shell which is then hand-painted yellow to reflect the iridescent nature of the gecko. This cheerful gecko is great by itself, but it looks even better in pairs.
The basic frame of the gecko is created using tin, which is powder coated with a black finish. The frame is reinforced using tin 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 come through as tans and browns underneath the paint. The shell is then painted the bold colors you see. The entire front facing piece is carefully hand-painted keeping in mind the reflective qualities in the color of geckos.
