Lochness Monster Sculpture
This is a sculpture of the LochNess Monster. While walking along the shore of the Loch a dead, what looks to be like, baby Loch Ness Monster was found. This was the basis for our sculpture. Our sculpture resembles the skeletal remains with skin overlay of a plesiosaurs. This is what the original monster was thought to be. It has 3 fins, a tail and very sharp teeth. The animal is laying in a sandy type background, just as it was originally found. at the top the words Lochness Monster are embossed in the sand the same color as the monster. The sculpture measures: 12 inches in width x 8 inches in length x 3.5 inches deep. The sculpture can be easily hung on wall or can also be displayed flat on counter. It weighs about 5 pounds. It comes with a copy of the original newspaper article of the monsters discovery.
The Loch Ness Monster is a cryptid that is reputed to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. The most frequent speculation is that the creature represents a line of long-surviving plesiosaurs.
The term "Loch Ness Monster" was reportedly applied for the first time to the creature on 2 May 1933 by Alex Campbell, the water bailiff for Loch Ness and a part-time journalist, in a report in the Inverness Courier. On 4 August 1933, the Courier published as a full news item the claim of a London man, George Spicer, that a few weeks earlier while motoring around the Loch, he and his wife had seen "the nearest approach to a dragon or pre-historic animal that I have ever seen in my life", trundling across the road toward the Loch carrying "an animal" in its mouth. Other letters began appearing in the Courier, often anonymously, with claims of land or water sightings, either on the writer's part or on the parts of family, acquaintances or stories they remembered being told. These stories soon reached the national (and later the international) press, which talked of a "monster fish", "sea serpent", or "dragon", eventually settling on "Loch Ness Monster". On 6 December 1933 the first purported photograph of the monster, taken by Hugh Gray, was published, and shortly after the creature received official notice when the Secretary of State for Scotland ordered the police to prevent any attacks on it. In 1934, interest was further sparked by what is known as The Surgeon's Photograph.
