100 years of Canberra breeds a Skywhale

I still don't get it.  
In celebration of Canberra's centenary, a skywhale hot air balloon was created, by an artist who shall not be named on this little site.  

I understand the link between hot air and Canberra, but I've got no clue what whales have to do with our landlocked capital city.  
Nor can I get my pea brain around the concept of a whale with a dozen teats on its wings.
An ugly and absurd piece of 'art'.
Having paid $300K for this inflated object, the ACT government doesn't even own it; that honour goes to a hot air balloon company in Melbourne.
