Alien Squid Lady?

Squid Lady 3
The Creature from the Colorado Springs Lagoon?

A huge, strange metal sculpture that is part mermaid, creature from the black lagoon, alien xenomorph and squid or octopus that sits on the top of a an old brick warehouse building on the border of downtown Colorado Springs, CO and Old Colorado City. It’s in a location that makes it hard to see and appreciate, being up on a building surrounded by railroad tracks, a major interstate highway and a major road overpass, underpass intersection. Have driven by many times I decided to walk by and see if I could capture some images, but most of the angles except for one side are blocked when you’re on foot.

The sculpture’s placement makes it seem a strange part of the billboard in front and below it.

Looking out from the top of the building like a strange aquatic version of a gargoyle.
