The mold for this pewter casting was taken from a Caribbean Seahorse. It is 2 5/8 inches in diameter and weighs 0.4 ounces.
Seahorses are a type of small fish that have armored plates all over their body (they don't have scales). There are about 50 different species of seahorses around the world. Seahorses have a long, horse like head (hence their name) and a curled tail. Seahorses range in size from about 4/10ths of an inch to about 1 foot long. They live in seaweed beds in warm water and are very slow swimmers. Seahorses can change their color to camouflage themselves in order to hide from enemies.
The technique of replicating the exact shape of sea creatures was developed by Jeff Mitchell, a pewter smith who lives in Wellfleet, Cape Cod. For an explanation of this technique see Jeff’s Website.
