A shark statue decked out in the rainbow LGBTQIA+ flag - plus colours representing ethnic minorities - has been slammed as 'garbage' by a prominent politician.
However, the Australian Museum in Sydney said staff have been 'blown away' by an 'outpouring of love' for its exhibition, named Progress Shark.
From next week the museum's iconic shark will be decked out in the colours of the progress flag.
Its main body will feature the LGBTQ rainbow while pink and blue stripes to represent trans people will be positioned towards its fin.
