|This is another of Gerry's designs created from exploring the fish shape. It started from the Christian symbol and hybridized itself into its current sleek shape.|
It derived its name primarily from the shape yet has come to mean things a bit deeper. As we pollute and deplete both our fresh waters and oceans, we are destroying the habitat for fish. This carving is a reminder of what we are doing and a plea to preserve both the species and the environnment. Gerry is an avid fisherman (though he admits not a very skilled one). In his youth he was a thrash and kill fisherman, but with the wisdom of age is now a 'walk lightly and take only what you will consume' sportsman. Live and learn.
