The Bone Aquarium is a collection of fish and sea mammals rendered to look like their skeletons.
Some are whimsical with imaginary titles and swirling colors. Some are true skeletal representations
and are titled their scientific names as if they are true museum quality bone relics.
It's fitting they are created with paper mache, born from dripping strips of recycled paper,
soaked, poked, pasted and pressed in wetness.
The miracle happens as they dry and they swim alive at last into their bones.
