There are over 32,500 fish swimming inside the Shedd Aquarium, but this big fish is the only one who can talk.

German sculptor Stephan Balkenhol created Man with Fish in 2001. Made from painted bronze and standing 16 feet tall, the piece depicts an expressionless man locked in a passionless embrace with a fish that spits water from its mouth! But how does it feel to be a fish out of water?
