Dating back to mid-19th century Japan, gyotaku is a form of printing that uses a real fish to create a print or rubbing. Each piece is produced when a fish is laid on a wood bench and painted on one side with sumi ink. A piece of paper or textile is then applied to the inked side to create a print. This reproduction print is made from an original rice paper rubbing created by Dwight Hwang and depicts the predatory Japanese Sea Bass.
