Fish As Artist!

You may have heard about this, but the attached photo is of a “carving” made by the tiny Puffer Fish off the coast of Japan. It was discovered 80′ deep in the Pacific Ocean and is 6.5′ across. Shells are also incorporated into the sculpture. The fish makes the sculpture to attract the female and it is believed the contours protect the eggs from underwater currents that would otherwise destroy them.

Here is the tiny fish at work:

 

 

 

 

Can we say the fish is an artist? Or can only humans create works of art?  Do we speak metaphorically when we say God or Nature create works of art when we are looking at breathtaking sunsets or the beautiful Northern Lights? Or do we mean it literally? What about this little fellow?  {For more about this little guy, click here.]
