Fish # 03 Sea Lamprey Petromyzon marinus ~ Helen Green
Faber-Castell oil based Polychromos pencils blended with a solvent 30 x 42 cm
I look like an eel but without the fins, long, agile and strong.
My mouth is large and jawless with lots of sharp teeth.
I am a parasite happy to live on my host in fresh or salt water.
With my suction like mouth I attach myself to the skin of my host.
My victim will eventually die from blood loss or infection.
Yet after I spawn I quickly die and become food for other fish.
Some Europeans even like to eat me!
