Koi VIII Taiga by Andrea Wilkinson
Koi VIII Taiga
Mixed media with recycled plastic
9 x 11 x 8
My koi sculptures were inspired by the beautiful butterfly koi I first saw at the airport in Guayaquil. Their tails and fins are larger than what a typical koi would have and appear ruffled. Butterfly koi were actually developed in the United States by breeding standard colorful koi with long-finned but drab-colored carp found in Indonesia. A beautiful result.
