Sorrento - Barracuda


72 BIG Fish from the 2006 Commonwealth Games | Barracuda2006 Commonwealth Games Fish; Barracuda

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

This fish was a gamble. I wasn't sure if the location was going to pan out considering it's location but I visited the 
Sorrento Sailing Couta Boat Club on my way down the peninsula chasing sculptures and the location turned up gold. The Barracuda is native to the Antigua & Barbuda and decorates the wall to the clubs meeting room.
