The part of a car turbine gave the idea. As far as this part had an oval whole, it had to be filled with something. I came up with the idea to make it transparent and possible to open. I used the corps of a large clock with glass possible to open for this. Gears, tubes and other parts can be seen through this. It lets one discover a robotized inside of the fish. In addition, a tail is a very interesting part. An unexpected idea to use a leather gun compartment which I acquired in a flea market came to my mind. I think that I’ve made an original turbo fish.
