  • "The Sacred Cod of Massachusetts, also known simply as the Sacred Cod, is a carving of a codfish that hangs in the House of Representatives chamber of the Massachusetts State House in Boston, Massachusetts. The Sacred Cod measures 4 feet 11 inches (1.50 m) long, is carved out of a solid piece of pine, and symbolizes the importance of the fishing industry to Massachusetts. There have been a total of three Sacred Cods, the latest of which was carved in 1784 and presented to the House later that year by the Boston merchant John Rowe. The current cod was stolen as a practical joke in 1933 by students from Harvard University, but was returned two days later."
