We have carefully sealed the front and back of the image to ensure that it is water resistant. It will be OK if you get caught in the rain, but please avoid submerging it when swimming or bathing. Each pendant is hand-created at our gallery and so some slight variations in composition and wood tone may occur.
About this design
Inspired by the image titled Mandarin Blue taken by my husband underwater photographer Glen Cowans
Mandarin fish spend their days hiding within the growth of the reef but at night it is a different story altogether. After the sun sets they gradually rise through the growth to the outer edges. They move in small “skips” almost as if they are walking. When a large male happens upon a smaller female he will chase her for awhile and then, with some unseen signal, they move free from the growth and swim cheek to cheek, almost as if they are doing a tango. Suddenly, in the blink of an eye, they mate and then dart back to their safety.
