The Headington Shark
Jacoblog sent me a link to a website showing unusual statues, where I found this old photo of the Headington Shark in Oxford, UK. I remember the kerfuffle the shark created. American Bill Heine commissioned the fibreglass shark as a protest. Created by sculptor John Buckley, "Untitled 1986" was erected on the 41st anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Nagasaki. It's still there! Click the title link to read Inspector Peter Macdonald's brilliantly witty report on the sculpture, and here to see modern photos of it.
