Artistic mystery baffles Sidney

The salmon mosaic appears on a local planter near the bandshell in Beacon Park

Who created it?

That is the question that remains unsolved after Chris Wallace, a gardener with the Town of Sidney, discovered a mosaic of a salmon on a public planter last week. The planter itself stands near the bandshell in Beacon Park overlooking the ocean.
