Famous Headless Shark

headington headless shark

This sculpture of a shark heading into a house is rather huge, it is 25 feet long and weighs 203 kilograms. I think those with Selachophobia (fear of sharks) will want to avoid living in this neighbourhood. The sculpture of the shark has no head and has been there since 1986 in, fittingly enough, Headington, Oxford, England. Get it? Head-ington? :P

What is the purpose behind it? According to the house owner

The shark was to express someone feeling totally impotent and ripping a hole in their roof out of a sense of impotence and anger and desperation…. It is saying something about CND, nuclear power, Chernobyl and Nagasaki.”


It was erected on the 41st anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Nagasaki. Anyone studying in England ever visited this place?

I’m reminded by Dr Evil “all i want is to have frickin’ sharks with frickin’ laser beams attached to their frickin’ heads” hehehe.

    Hahaha – I’d like to know how many car accidents happen on the street beside this house while people are gaping in confusion! Nice pic!

    Are we really sure it’s a shark and not a dolphin?
