Picture of a giant Fukushima mutant dog has wowed social media. According to various sources, the dog was bred in Japan using in-vitro techniques. The gametic maternal cells were infused with Fukushima irradiated male DNA, then the eggs were grown in vitro.
Some of Peter Coffin’s work is anything but subtle. The showstopper of the Hirshhorn exhibition is a lifelike sculpture of a giant Great Dane that seemingly floats one inch above the floor, thanks to hidden pins that support its massive bulk.Although it presents itself as a news site, Topekas News specializes in publishing fanciful nonsense. Giant creatures resulting from Fukushima radiation are seemingly a favourite topic for the site's fictional stories.
With the dimensions of a small horse, the oversize pooch boasts penetrating blue eyes and a glossy black pelt. Fabricated by a taxidermist, not Coffin, the sculpture is covered with pony hide stretched over a carved, dog-shaped armature. Just like a real animal, its coat must be brushed periodically to maintain its gorgeous sheen.The dog’s visual impact is hard to overstate. Traffic jams form in the gallery from folks whipping out cellphone cameras, and the museum encourages visitors to upload their own snaps of the dog to its photo-sharing Web site.
