Pyramid Hill - Koran Angelfish


72 BIG Fish from the 2006 Commonwealth Games | BIG Koran Angelfish72 BIG Fish from the 2006 Commonwealth Games | BIG Koran Angelfish

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.

Another stunning sculpture and easy going swimming pool The Koran Angelfish sits in the corner of  the Pyramid Hills Swimming Pool. Staff gave me access, no worries. If you find yourself in Pyramid Hill during non trading hours you'll still be able to snag a photo through the cyclone fencing if your camera has a decent zoom but the quality and angle won't be great.
