Title: Decorative submersible fish tank sculpture

Abstract: A decorative submersible sculpture is described in which a submersible hollow body is formed with a peripheral wall structure. The wall structure defines an internal receptacle of a prescribed decorative shape that is configured to be filled by a visually opaque particulate medium and formed by the internal receptacle into the prescribed decorative shape. At least part of the wall structure is transparent and configured in such a manner that when the receptacle is filled with visually opaque particulate medium, the medium takes the form of the prescribed decorative shape and is visible through the transparent part or parts of the wall structure. The decorative shape will visually appear to be in a solid, self-supporting state, and the transparent parts of the wall structure will be substantially invisible.
