This piece of canary wood is naturally streaked with red, so it does look a bit like blood in water or the reflection of a sunset depending on how you want to think about it. The shark is carved from blue pine and aspen. The rack has 6 small antique brass hooks from D. Lawless hardware for keys or other small items and measures 9" by 10". There are 2 recessed hanging holes on the back for easy, secure installation. All proceeds on this item minus the cost of wood are donated to Atlantic White Shark Conservancy.
