Angel Fish

Filed under: Hooked on Arts — lessie @ 1:46 am

I love the colors and detail of this fish sculpture by Steve Walter. (It’s located on Main Street, near the Sullivan King Mortuary.) I wonder what it depicts though. Something Native American? An old man is blowing a horn on the other side. More pictures here.



  1. Fish sculptures seems to be popular! Interesting.

  3. I don’t think it is Native American…I think that is Gabrial (as in Angel) blowing his horn.

  4. I’m glad you enjoy the colors. The image is of the archangel Gabriel blowing his horn (the fish’s mouth.) It’s adapted for this purpose from one of a series of small acrylic paintings. They are contemporary interptretations of the kind of Celtic figures found in the illuminated pages of the Book of Kells. The Book of Kells was created about 805 AD in Ireland, and is a copy of the gospels of the New Testament.

    Translating the 2-D image onto the 3-D fish form was more of a challenge that I anticipated, but I’m glad I had the opportunity to participate in this fundraising activity for the Anderson Arts Center.
