Surfaced Fish / Soap

Surfaced Fish
Surfaced Fish

This lovely piece of soap resembles an outline of a fish, as it provides a convenient and natural grip. The soap

begins as a full fish, but by the end it is left just with a bone. This is to remind users to pay attention to

the harmful substances that could be going down the drains and polluting the water. Since ancient times, many

cultures, beliefs, and myths associate fish with beneficial and positive symbolic meanings. It would be a tragedy

if perhaps a hundred years later all we have on Earth are these fish bones to remind us of the past.
