Some of their decorative art looks like a giant fish’s scale, reminiscing the days where it was believed the existence of mermaids and some other mythological creatures. This fish scale looking furniture art is actually made of Pirarucu leather, which is the discarded skin of a giant fish found in Amazonian rivers and lakes.
