Anytime I visit the beach and swim in the ocean, I can’t help but think about getting attacked by a shark. The movie Jaws definitely scared me as well as most of the USA when it came out in theaters.
There’s something so mysterious about sharks. Not to mention they have big razor-sharp teeth!
American graffiti artist, Jimmy Swift, decided to paint a giant shark on the shores of Palolem Beach, South Goa, India.
Thankfully, the shark isn’t real but people are having a blast taking photos for their Instagram followers.

After two years my shark was almost completely faded away, so a fresh coat of paint and he's back and ready for more selfies. 1st pic is the updated version and the 2nd pic is from the first time I painted two years ago. It's truly amazing how mother nature can carve out such a perfect shape. . . . . . #palolem #goa #india #sharkrock #swift #jimmyswift #rockart #palolembeach #canacona #spraypaint @goa
“This was the hardest thing I’ve ever painted. I was literally beaten up by the waves and rising tide and forced to stop before it was finished. I could have done better, but between the blowing sand and wind, splashing waves, burning hot sun and the fact I’ve never painted a shark before or painted on a 3-dimensional surface like a rock…. I think it turned out OK,” writes the Jimmy on his Instagram post.
“When I first saw this rock it looked like a perfect place for a great white. Hopefully, it doesn’t scare the shit out of people! This was inspired by the movie posters from Jaws…. A movie that scared the shit out of me when I was a kid!”SKM: below-content placeholder
