Mako Shark in Black

Wood & Metal Wall Sculpture

Created by Mark Gottschalk
Makos can reach 25 miles per/hr making them fastest of all sharks and speed is what this piece is about. The graceful slender body, the raked fin and tail, all accentuate that swiftness. Brushed aluminum has been inlaid for the gill plates. Black waterborne lacquer was used for the color and the surface coated with a clear epoxy resin. The body is soft maple, a sustainable hardwood harvested in the USA. All the necessary hardware to hang this piece is included.
