Why not do a clay fish? I attended a workshop once where they
used slabs that had been folded up like a taco shell, pinched at
the top to close (stuff with paper towels). The mouth was a
large open "o" and texture was added on the second day, using
found objects like keys, drill bits, etc. I don't remember how
they did the tails. You could tie it in with the gyotaku and
with fish kites that are popular. Fish are such an integral
part of Japanese culture (the goldfish, etc) that it makes
sense.
