Stonefish in Newaygo, Michigan

I love this sculpture installation in Riverside Park, Newaygo, Michigan, along the banks of the Muskegon River. The fish are big - there is no sense of scale here, but they're human sized. Can't find any reference on the internet to who sculpted these dry land fishes. This photo was taken in 2005. Maybe now there's a plaque identifying the artist. I'll look when I'm lucky enough to be in Newaygo again. Every spring I put this picture up as my wallpaper. It's not quite the same as being there, but it's close. Despite what the philosophers and pundits may say, close does count. Especially in the realm of art when contextual memories go along with the reproduction.
