This Fence Post Real Wood Fish Wall Sculpture is a one-of-a-kind sculpture handcrafted from a rich piece of rugged American history. This fish wall art makes a striking accent as well as a fascinating conversation piece for your home or office. 2 holes on the back allow for hanging vertically or horizontally.
This is NOT a plastic reproduction.
Because every fence post has its own past told in its grain, color, and shape, each fence post fish is also completely unique in size, shape, and color
Over 100 years ago, homesteaders along the Rocky Mountains staked out new land by planting juniper (cedar) fence posts around their property strung with barbed wire to contain cattle
Invented by woodworker Wayne Murray and perfected by former liturgical sculptor Tim Bergren, each Fence Post Wood Fish is created from a genuine, juniper fence post recycled from early American West ranches
Part historical artifact, part original work of art, a portion of each fish remains unfinished to reveal the quality, history, and texture of the original wood post set against the smooth, polished wood of the sculptural portion
The juniper fence post wood (cedar) is naturally insect-repellent and weather-resistant
Pieces vary in color from deep red wood to honey-gold and blonde
