Anchorage, Alaska: The Last Blue Whale Statue

This work of art has to be one of the biggest in downtown Anchorage. The approach is a little, um, odd.

This is called "The Last Blue Whale," and it is designed to show people what happens when a whale is attacked. The fishing boat has been attacked - you can sort of see people jumping out of the it.

As for the whale, he/she has something of a smirk on its face. This creature isn't quite ready to be turned into whale oil quite yet.

Tributes to mankind getting knocked around by the animal kingdom are few and far between. This one checks in at about three stories, so even though it is surrounded by trees and bushes, it stands out. Visit it at 301 K Street when you are in Anchorage.
