Stone Fish. # 152-20

Christine Holroyd

Ghost Net Sculpture



Price includes freight anywhere within Australia by Aus Post. International postage is not included.

Stonefish inhabit our waters. He sometimes catch them with hook and line. When we catch one we usually can shake it off the hook or have to be very careful not to be stabbed by venomous spikes. When we drag a net we do not lift our feet we drag them in the sand. This way our feet bump against them and sting rays also who also have a poison barb. Bumping them lets them swim away without stabbing us. If you step on one you will get stabbed. This is their place and you have to show respect for them.
