    From left, concrete artist Alex Anderson, owner of Alex Anderson Concrete, and Anderson employee Justin Porter watch as Anderson's whale vertebrae sculpture is raised by crane Wednesday on its way to placement on its foundation at Valley Creek Estuary Park in Port Angeles. The 7-ton concrete sculpture will become a permanent art installation along the Port Angeles waterfront.

PORT ANGELES -- A 7-ton concrete sculpture installed Wednesday in the Port Angeles resembles the shape of a gray whale vertebra. But artist Alex Anderson made changes so kids could climb on it or people could sit on it as a bench.
Anderson worked three years on the piece, which was funded by a $65,000 anonymous donation.
The Peninsula Daily News reported that it's the 27th permanent installation in the city's Art on the Town outdoor sculpture gallery.
