This 9 meters long piece of art represents a shark being hung to an arch and portrays the poach-ing of this threatened species. Philippe Pasqua intends to ironize on the fact that the biggest predators are in reality human beings. The artist addresses the issue of humans’ responsibility and poses the question: “Who should be scared?”
