But there's a serious message -- the 15 meter long turtle, called Alphie, is covered in a black-and-white coral reef pattern. Organizers want to raise awareness of Australia's great natural wonder, the Great Barrier Reef, which is rapidly deteriorating from pollution and seabed dredging. 

The Undersea Art Exhibition will host a collection of paintings by Australian artist BJ Price. The pictures will appear in underwater display tanks and the show runs for the next month.
