Homage for Spots aka Jaws
This piece was created to bring attention to the barbaric, ignorant and wasteful practice of shark finning. We have a friend who is an underwater explorer and he had a 20 year relationship with "spots" the shark. He would encounter Spots from time to time in his explorations of the ocean. One day his beloved shark washed up on a beach in Mexico...without his fins. We were greatly saddened by this. Sharks are vital to the health of the ocean. Without them, things get out of balance and squid populations explode. Fortunately this practice is starting to wane. None too soon for the poor shark. We kill over 70 million of them a year! Give them a break!
