UPDATE 29/06/05 – Return with salvage team; extracted approx. 12 ft segment of stone from the sunken statue (finger? arm?). Segment was dislodged from statue and lay among rubble near “feet” of the Giant. Approx. 14 hours to retrieve specimen. Feeling increasingly that this is no minor discovery.
UPDATE 18/08/05 – My University contacts are curiously disinterested in pursuing study of the Giant. Reluctant agreement to test the retrieved specimen of stone. Press contacts equally apathetic – feel like I’m beating my head against a wall. Anyone with speculation about the Sunken Giant, please contact me!
Appears to be a giant statue of some kind – images reveal humanoid skeletal structure approx. 200 ft. tall from head to foot.

Yet the photo of the "head" does not appear even remotely similar to a human skull. Furthermore, if the statue shows a humanoid skeletal structure, where does the "fin" fit into the skeleton?
An Australian divemaster who owns a dive boat in the Philippines has found what appears to be a giant underwater statue of some 300-400 feet long. His site has 2 images, but so far it's hard to make much sense of it all. Though the diver (Ed Guyler) is attempting to document the statue, he doesn't try to answer what it's a statue of.
And frankly, looking at the photos... I'm not so sure I buy his contention that it's a statue. It looks a lot like a fossil to me, of some sort of gigantic eel or squid.
Whether this is a statue or a real creature is impossible to say...

So let me guess, you agree with the same premise as this guy: the imaginative interpreter: Eric Belson?

Material structure similiar to Anguilliformes bone, however large sample size is abnormal for species. Unable to determine origin of species from sample based on broad search of current ocean species data.
Your stone sample clearly organic.
DNA tests inconclusive.
Appears to be unknown subspecies of eel.
