    Default My father inlaws work

    My father inlaw (Charles Clark) recently finished this 8ft long masterpiece. A friend of his had passed away from cancer and had asked him to finish this for him and present it to his wife. They are Atlantic Salmon in the original authors favorite run.





    He will be making smaller versions of this and other fish related carvings for sale. This is all from one piece of wood.

    Wow, that's a beautiful piece of art. You're right on, that's a masterpiece. Great photos too, I love the fins broken through the water in the second shot. Your Father In Law should be proud, I'm sure his friend would be.

    .

    Baseman1, those are beautiful beyond all description.

    In Dollar value, owing to its uniqueness, I would estimate a value well in excess of at least $35,000 if not indeed, double that.

    Keep it in your family.
