I saw this on the Carol Duvall Show the other day.

The artist,David Wirth taught himself to carve one summer when he couldn’t afford his favorite pastime–fishing. He pulled out his filet knife and a block of wood and whittled himself a fish. Since then, he’s been carving all kinds of fish for all kinds of commissions; he’s even in the World Fishing Hall of Fame in Florida. One of his smaller and more exquisite pieces is the seahorse, carved from extremely hardwood.
