Fish woven chambira tree ornament from the Peruvian Amazon

These unique fish ornaments were made from chambira palm fiber by an artisan from the campesino village of San Francisco on the Maranon River in the Peruvian Amazon. 

One model represents the clownfish which swims unmolested among the stinging tentacles of sea anemone.  The popular animated movie character "Nemo" is based on this fish which is popular in the aquarium trade. 

The other tropical fish is a blue tang - the fish that Nemo's movie buddy Dory is based on.

Please remember that these ornaments are handmade by different artisans so they may not exactly look like the photos for this model.
