Commuters in Liege, Belgium were shocked to see a Whale being transported on a flatbed truck.
The smiling Whale was being delivered to Liège Theatre Belgium as part of the stage dressing for their presentation of Herman Melville’s classic whale tale Moby Dick. The theatre posted an image on Facebook with the caption:
“If you’re in the neighbourhood come take a look at this strange delivery… A whale in a theatre, really?!”
Melville’s 1851 literary classic story which is narrated by a sailor called Ishmael and the story of the obsessive quest of Captain Ahab for revenge on Moby Dick, a white whale which on a previous voyage destroyed Ahab’s ship and severed his leg at the knee.
