Besides the soy sauce you have to have a gob of wasabi, and of course chopsticks!!! The print looks great in the white wash frame. The black rope is the actual rope used to pull in the lobster traps to the boat. We also include an authentic lobster or stone crab tag on the face of the frame. You can get the framed print with or without the rope. This print comes in several sizes and all prints are signed by the artist.
