The Yangzhong Puffer Fish, or the "Puffer Fish Tower" is a notable 295-foot long bronze statue in the shape of the puffer fish. Weighing 2,300 tons and reportedly costing $11 million, this statue sits on the banks of the Yangtze River in the Jiangsu Province of China. Work on this project was completed in 2013.[1][2][3]

The Yangzhong Puffer Fish sculpture is the largest steel-framework sculpture in China, and perhaps the entire world.[4]
