Unusual Fish Taxidermy Diorama Set in Decaying Underwater Industrial Environment

About

Unusual fish taxidermy diorama set in decaying underwater industrial environment. A dramatic painting in the background depicts a large underwater structure or a sunken portion of a submarine and a pipeline with an impressive gate valve. Foreground is a 3D arrangement of decaying wood mixed with various man made parts, the trout is placed in an active position chasing a larvae of a great diving beetle, whose adult form is visible above. Overall, it is an interesting combination of a vintage taxidermy being used in a contemporary setting and is much closer to a modern art than just a natural history object. The display makers obviously must have access to information about the fish history from a previous mount, which is provided on the handwritten plaque lower right. Background: Oil on board. Foreground: Painted wood and metal. In an ebonized modern wooden case with plexiglass glazing, The case measures 21 1/4"-inches high x 31 1/4"-inches wide x 6 3/4"-inches deep.
