“Geyser Spring Butterfly Fish”
5×7 inches, watercolor and ink

An odd little cartilaginous fish, this creature is part of a unique community thriving in and around volcanic hot springs. It is adapted for extreme heat and fell into a death-like torpor in tepid-temperature water before it was placed over the coals and revived!

This is truly stunning! Not only is this creature design authentically unique but it's illustrated beautifully in a well-painted amniotic bottle with nicely-lit bubbles!
