The sculpture of Malaysian artist Kamwei Fong is both modern and traditional, a creative feat that is hard to attain. Her Goldfish sculpture, featured here with his other sea-inspired work, would fit in a modern penthouse just as easily as a country home.

Kamwei Fong's work features simplified shapes of natural creatures. Unlike actual fish, though, Kamwei Fong's work is anything but slimy and smelly.

Implications - The eco movement has swept across a large cross-section of society, transcending niche demographics. This movement has people more sensitive to maltreatment of animals and has nurtured a fascination with the animal kingdom. Companies can capitalize of this by displaying sensitivity to the other creatures of the planet.
