Giant Bony Fish

The giant bony fish is an art work built in a retention pond by the Galyans sporting goods company. It was to be a showpiece at their new corporate headquarters, built on the shore of the pond. Another sporting goods company (Dicks) bought out Galyans and the building sat empty for a couple of years. The fish itself once gleamed a silvery color, but is kinda rusty now.
