Factoring the time spent on research by artist Eric Heath, plus his time to paint each of the 351 images depicted, plus gallery time to scan and process the images, compose, proof, index and fine tune this plate, we estimate this plate represents over 3,000 hours of work.

 

Each of the 351 species depicted is discretely numbered with the indexed common name for each painting listed at the bottom of the print forming an artwork perhaps without equal in the world.

Plate 261 Manaia - The Seahorse Montage

The Manaia is a mythological creature in Māori culture and the traditional name for the Seahorse, the title given to 54 species of marine fish in the genus Hippocampus. The word 'Hippocampus' comes from the Ancient Greek 'hippos' meaning 'horse' and 'kampos' meaning 'sea monster'
The Manaia is traditionally believed to be the messenger between the earthly world of mortals and the domain of the spirits and is a symbol used as a guardian against evil. The earliest known seahorse fossils date back about 13 million years.

  

The male seahorse is equipped with a brood pouch and when mating, the female seahorse deposits up to 1,500 eggs in the male's pouch. The male then carries the eggs for 9 to 45 days until the seahorses emerge. 

  

Fish Art Plate 261 Manaia Seahorse montage is an open edition print composed from 140 different marine life paintings by Eric Heath, each having been scanned from the original, remastered then arranged with meticulous attention to detail and is supplied with a separate species identification key with both the common and scientific names of all 140 species depicted, including a Seahorse, perhaps doubling this prints anti-evil power . . . .
