Although the crystals are as sharp as cut glass, Hasnah says she feels no pain and doctors cannot explain the phenomenon. Her father wants her to see specialists in Europe or America to find an explanation.

Buying the ship was no problem, but because of a shortage of both personnel and finances the ship lay unused in a Greek harbour for three years. The project's director suggested that he and the entire crew fast for 40 days, following the example set by Jesus, to show that they were willing to make sacrifices and were serious in their intentions.
Towards the end of the 40 days of fasting a series of miracles started. They began as a Moroccan crew member was walking along the beach and 12 fish leapt out of the water at his feet. Later a large fish sprang out of the sea at the feet of the then chief engineer and his family as they walked by the water's edge. On the 38th day of the fast, an American girl (a member of the volunteer crew) was sitting on the beach when 210 fish landed near her. The following day, while the crew was praying for Greece and the needs of the world, one of the crew members shouted: "The fish are coming!" Everyone rushed outside. No fewer than 8,301 fish had jumped out of the sea and on to the beach. All efforts were made to return the fish to the sea to no avail -- they simply leapt out again landing at the feet of the crew. Eventually the fish were collected, cleaned and salted. For the following six weeks the crew ate fish at least once a week.
The "miracle of the fish" so encouraged the crew that the ship was soon able to sail and shortly thereafter experienced another miracle -- donations totalling $600,000 flowed in to support their project.

The mystery figure has produced much interest from the Australian and international media, and speculation about its creator is rife. While some people think it was a prank by the local community to attract tourists, others are suggesting it could only be the work of extra-terrestrials. (Source: The Guardian, UK)
