There are two large fish under this dome! Directly underneath is the “Holy Mackerel” of the Massachusetts Senate. Nearby is its more famous cousin, the “Sacred Cod.”  This good luck symbol was donated to the House of Representative by the fishing industry to remind lawakers of the importance of seafood for the local economy. Hilariously, the editors of  the Harvard Lampoon  “codnapped” this sculpture. They later relented and told the authorities where they could find it. After that, UMASS students tried to do the same thing. Second acts usually fall flat. This is the Massachusetts State House.
