Merboy Mystery

I'll be the first to admit that my knowledge of mythology may be somewhat limited, but the subject of this piece seems to be from legend. Son of Poseidon perhaps? Made by the great Dane Just Andersen in the 1940s, this fishy sculpture was created from a mixed metal ore of Andersen's own making (meant to replicate Bronze during rations) called "Disko" metal. Perhaps there's more to this "Big Fish" story than meets the eye.
