Description:
There is no such thing as too much sushi. These sea life creatures are located in many different Mikuni locations, suspending in the air. Sitting and looking up is as if you're beneath the ocean and all of it's aquatic inhabitants. Made from recycled mild steel and lit with red, blue and white LED ligths, is a 12ft wide octopus. The different metal cut outs that form the outer body keep visitors engaged and curious. There is also a dangling school of tuna that looks as though it is swimming in the air. They are made from mild steel and hammered to the correct proportions.
