The latest art installation titled "Bleed Teal" depicts an anatomically-enhanced shark separated from its skeleton. It also illustrates its stomach with a few choice snacks like a California license plate, a fish skeleton, a hockey stick and an old Anaheim Ducks mask.

The six-story tall mural was created by world-famous artist Nychos after the San Jose Sharks reached out to Empire Seven Studios and Mighty Design in an effort to commission sharks-related artwork near the SAP Center. 

Fans can find the large scale piece towering over the Whole Foods parking lot in The Alameda.
