The Botafogo Beach Fish Sculpture will conjure up thoughts of long-gone mythological marine creatures that used to roam the seas before the human species was born. A large scale creation, it is completely constructed out of plastic bottles, making it a giant eco-friendly work of art.

Created as part of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, also known as Rio+20, the Botafogo Beach Fish Sculpture is located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Vibrantly illuminated from within, it provides a striking ambiant light during the nighttime. Mesmerizing both during the day and after dark, it is a beautiful tribute to marine life. More than that, the enormity of the Botafogo Beach Fish Sculpture once again illustrates how many plastic bottles litter the earth. Thus, the outdoor installation sends an important message in a beautiful manner.
