This mixed media sculpture would make a great gift for sea lovers. The dolphin is hand sculpted out of polymer clay, then painted, and varnished. The base is made out of wood and wire. The sea floor background is painted by hand on the plaque, and then it’s covered with resin for a glossy and dimensional look. There’s sawtooth hardware on the back of the plaque for convenient hanging. The dolphin hangs on the short chain with a glass bead from a wire hook. It can be viewed from different angles, which makes this sculpture truly interesting. The background and the figurine are separated in different dimensions. Even more separation is created by contrast between the glossy finish of the water on the plaque, and the matte finish on the dolphin sculpture. This wall sculpture is about 5 inches wide and 3.5 inches tall. The dolphin figurine is about 3.5 inches long.
This dolphin sculpture is a part of my “Sea Creatures” series. The humpback whale and beluga whale sculptures from these series are also available.
