Here are some stellar examples of gyotaku.

Here's a brief history of gyotaku.

Gyotaku (gyo=fish, taku=impression) is an ancient Oriental art form which uses actual fresh-caught fish to create lovely one-of-a-kind art prints on cloth or paper. Natural Impressions employs the traditional gyotaku techniques with modern twists, using fresh-caught Hawaiian fish and natural vegetation for spectacular results!
