This concept is a realization of my mission that started about 5 years ago when one of my dearest BRODO's (the Danimal) sent me the video posted below of TIGRESS SHARK (Hannah Mermaid) at Tiger Beach openly swimming with huge Tiger Sharks to bring awareness for conservation. I was MESMERMAIDIZED! Not only did I just make up that word while typing this happen, it had such influence over my art and was one of the catalysts to the 3D Shark Teeth Sculptures.
I would eventually stabilize and regain my thoughts while watching the video and learn that Jim Abernathy was behind putting Shawn Heinrichs and Hannah Mermaid there with those amazing creatures - one of which could be EMMA the infamous Tiger Shark!
I'm summing the story up, working on outlining this journey into my blog - Obedient Tiger was realized thanks to EMMA and these amazing people who fed this Memphis Artist a fantasy that awakened my soul!
I hope to one day afford to venture to Tiger Beach with Jim Abernathy Scuba Adventures for some relaxation with EMMA and her clan! Until then I will keep sculpting Tiger Shark Teeth to BITE THE STIGMA and END THE WAR ON SHARKS!
OBEDIENT TIGER is not for sale - it has too much special meaning and belongs to the Journey and those who made it possible. But there are plenty more sculptures in the line up inspired from this too! If you would like your own Obedient Tiger Shark Tooth Sculpture, or something similar to commemorate something special, I'll be honored to oblige! Hit me up! --- SPIC
We can't BITE THE STIGMA without JAWS!! Help SPICER keep making sculpture to raise awareness and funds for shark conservation efforts!! If you have a Non-Profit Charity you want to support, lets work together!
This is an inspiring example of Courage, Confidence, Trust, Acceptance & Divinity.
The FAITH of Sharks in humanity...
Thank you Hannah, Shawn and Jim for this GIFT!!
Mermaids... The Legends are Real.
