If I Had To Make an Undersea Diorama With Only One Fish…

Putting together a realistic undersea diorama must be difficult. The diorama-maker must work to create a dynamic environment implying movement and revealing a intriguing and ascetically appealing scene. As if this weren’t enough, they must also worry about balancing the fish model and getting the fish to hang at realistic angles.

This is all very difficult of course because they must also worry about carefully hiding or obscuring the supports that hold the fish in mid-air.

I think that underwater diorama makers must love the Tripod Fish (Bathypterois) pictured below.
