Betta Sprendens Siamese | Fighting Fish
native to the Mekong Basin of Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.
These fish are known for their mesmerising beauty. They flare out their gill cover to appear more aggressive, either to intimidate their rivals or as an act of courtship.
I knitted floor cushions in the shape of beads, inspired by the traditional dress of the women who live along the Mekong River.
