The world's largest aquarium has its very own Michelangelo.

An Italian artist is near completion of an aquatic mural on the expansive ceiling at the entrance to the Georgia Aquarium.

The 3,000-square-foot mural is an ocean scene with many of the creatures visitors can find at the aquarium, a whale shark, a beluga whale, schools of fish and a sea turtle.

The painting even features dolphins, which the aquarium is adding to its roster in 2010.

The artist has been working on the mural after hours for the last few weeks.

He's scheduled to complete the painting this month.
