Anthem of the Seas gets giant giraffe art piece

Anthem of the Seas, the sister ship to Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas, will apparently have a giant giraffe in the spot occupied by a pink bear sculpture on Quantum.

Photos of the enormous giraffe being hoisted aboard Anthem emerged on Twitter, and Royal Caribbean retweeted the photo under the heading “It’s a bird… it’s a plane… no, it’s a Giraffe. Anthem of the Seas’ larger than life art piece.”

The giraffe appears to be wearing a bright yellow swimming singlet and has a pink inner tube float around its midsection.

Other than the Quantum series, Royal Caribbean ships do not have large sculptures on the upper deck. The 30-foot-tall magenta bear, which Royal named Felicia, was fashioned by Denver-based artist Lawrence Argent out of 1,340 stainless steel triangles that weigh eight tons.

Argent called his composition “From Afar.”
