Great depiction of a manta ray swimming in coral. Hand-finished in solid brass upon a solid marble base. Gorgeous display piece of the finest quality. Polished brass accents shine through the beautiful finish.
The Manta Ray can reach widths of up to 23 ft. While they may be scary in appearance, Manta Rays are filter feeders eating mostly plankton.

How it is made:
begins life as 2-D concept art designed by talented artists in Northern
California. Master sculptors breathe life into the artwork with weeks
of hand sculpting in modeling clay.
Each part is cast using
either the lost wax or sand casting method. Artisans take the various
cast parts and carefully weld them together. After up to several days of
welding, sanding, and polishing, the metal sculpture takes its final
form and the patina artists then have their turn.
