Perth’s newest piece of public art has divided opinion and left many scratching their heads.

The $340,000, six-metre big bendy blue Cygna stands at the corner of Hay and Pier Streets.

Behold:

The artist, Jon Tarry, says the piece is a modernist interpretation of a black swan and the Swan River.

Let’s just say that the internet has reacted… here’s some comments that stood out to us…
