Tropical Betta Fish

Bronze, 2000

Dimensions: 4" H x 5.75" W x 2.75" D
Limited Edition of 200

The Tropical Betta Fish, otherwise known as the siamese fighting fish, originates in Southeast Asia and is frequently found in Thailand and Malaysia. Betta Splendens is the Latin name for this brilliantly colored fish which inhabits shallow, overgrown water or rice paddies. Paired with another male, the betta will fight to the death! The model for this Tropical Betta Fish bronze was the artist’s pet, Sparkle. Drawn to Sparkle’s fluid beauty and engaging responsiveness, Visbal created this limited edition image at three times life size. Coloration is true to the living model.
