The monumental Celestial Fish is made up of over 500 pounds of automobile transmission parts welded together to form a giant fish that stands elegantly on three fins. A carefully selected assemblage of transmission gears form the fish’s eyes. The tail fin is swept to one side as to capture the fish in a swimming motion.
The circular spots on the side of the fish are made from an eclectic combination of gears, pulleys, rings, and car parts that represent the planets of our solar system, while the many small perforations look like stars, hence the name, Celestial Fish.
Can you find Saturn, Mars, Earth and the Sun?
