The Seahorse Wall Décor is a beautiful and unique addition to any home. The seahorse symbolizes discovery of balance in life and transformation of energy into positive thoughts. And because of the way seahorses move, they’re also symbolic of peace and patience. The artist captures the splendor of the seahorse with a raised fin, high shine hand-painted finish, and capiz oyster shell chest and forefront. The Seahorse Wall Décor is the perfect way to bring good luck, strength, and beauty into your home.
The basic frame of the Seahorse is created using tin, which is powder-coated with a black finish and makes this piece safe to use outdoors. The edges of the frame are reinforced using thicker tin wire. The front of this piece is adorned in areas with capiz shell, an oyster native to the Philippines, before being hand-painted and sealed with a water-based sealant. The primary purpose of this oyster to provide a source of food, however, the shell is a sustainable by-product that can be used for decoration. The capiz shell subtly replicates the reflective qualities of seahorses in nature. The entire piece is lightweight and has an eyelet in the back allowing it to be hung using a finishing nail, command strip, or a push pin.
Due to it being a natural material, the organic colors of capiz come through as tans and browns underneath the paint.
