Sekiu, Washington: Rosie: Fish with Legs and Breasts

Perverse Pacific Northwest fantasy fish-gal named "Rosie." Seemed to have been placed here in 2005. Believe it or not, there are others in Washington.

Front St., Sekiu, WA
From Port Angeles take US Hwy 101 west a couple of miles, then turn north onto Hwy 112/Strait of Juan de Fuca Hwy for 46 miles to Sekiu. The Fish is on the east edge of town, on the north side of Hwy 112, next to the Sekiu Welcomes You sign.

Fish with Legs and Breasts

The statue of the fish -- running towards the small town of Sekiu in Washington while wearing a pink bra and skirt with tennis shoes -- does have a name. It is "Rosie" and is inscribed in the cement at the base, along with the date "06/13/05," probably the date of its erection.

It was placed, presumably, as a response and mate for Gil the Running Fish in the neighboring small town of Clallam Bay, WA.

Sekiu Fish Girl

The small, much-too-isolated fishing village of Sekiu, WA welcomes you with a carved wooden statue that's best described as "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" meets "Sweet Valley High".

Fish with Legs and Breasts

Fish statue, with legs and boobs, wearing a bikini top and a skirt with no explanation at all, next to the "Sekiu Welcomes You" sign, a large anchor, and a large rock that serves as a billboard. They should at least offer some kind of reason for its existence -- it's pretty creepy looking.

Here's a 1997 tip of a another busty fish statue -- in Des Moines, WA, south of Seattle. Perhaps a figure from northwestern Native American mythology?
