This wonderful "Nautilus" was created by an unknown metal sculptor by welding together hundreds of small metal plates. The sea creature inspired vehicle is a loose interpretation of the underwater craft from "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea". A single light hangs in the center, illuminating out the window openings. It is an imaginative and whimsical sculpture executed by a very skilled artist. The ship displays a great patina of age throughout.
