A SEAMONSTER aka LEVIATHAN (Belua devorans)
An ancient species. Inhabits all oceans, including the one in Olaus Magnus’ Carta Marina. Today, the species live on the plastic rubbish in the oceans. Thus they help clean the oceans.
Feeding allowed only after completing training at Vellamo!Climbing on the monster is forbidden. Being swallowed is allowed.
Artist: Alexander Reichstein
Children attach plastic rubbish, collected from the sea, to the monster, creating it's "skin". Before the winter starts, the rubbish will be taken away to the recycling station, and the monster starts glowing by night in the UV light.
