Carlton - BIG Bone Fish & BIG Papuan Black Bass

72 BIG Fish from the 2006 Commonwealth Games | BIG Bone Fish & BIG Papuan Black BassBIG Bone Fish & BIG Papuan Black Bass. 2006 Commonwealth Games Fish. 72 BIG Fish of Victoria

One of seventy-two large aquatic sea creatures created by MotherWorks for the opening ceremony of the 2006 Commonwealth Games. 

For every country that competed in the Games an aquatic sea creature, native to that country was created and floated across 36 barges down the Yarra River in an amazing sound and light display

After the Commonwealth Games concluded 62 of the sculptures were offered to councils through out Victoria to boost tourism. Many of the sculptures found permanent homes and sadly, since the sculptures weren't designed for the outdoor elements, between the Yarra River and councils placing them outdoors, many sculptures perished.

The Melbourne Museum snapped up two of these sculptures and when I went the staff had no idea they existed.
The security guards on the other hand knew what I was after. Once you enter the facility turn left and walk to the toilets. They're located just in front of the utilities and are HUGE!!! 

The Bone Fish is native to the Bahamas and the Papuan Black Bass is native to Papua New Guinea
