A sculpture of painted steel that might remind one of some otherworldly creature. The original title of the piece was "Stablitt 57." However, due to its resemblance to the Loch Ness Monster, it was nicknamed "Nessie" and the name stuck. It is sixteen feet tall, eight feet in width and depth, and weighs 2652 pounds.
