Toledo Zoo Aquarium – Shark

In 2015 the Toledo Zoo completed a full renovation of a WPA era building housing their aquarium. During the renovation, an old but popular sculpture of a Great White Shark had to be destroyed.  Graphite Design and Build was selected to create a new and improved shark for the space.  The replacement needed to be as realistic and eye-catching as the beautiful new interior of the aquarium.  The final model measures 18 feet in length and features ultra realistic details.  Visitors now have a terrifyingly real face to greet them every time they enter the new aquarium.  Please search #GDBShark on Instagram to see images of our production process.
