Generally I like sculptures as they give an area personality. Sometimes they commemorate an event or are in memory of a person. I like the quirky ones and the bronze pigs in Rundle Mall in Adelaide are among my favourites. Occasionally I see something and wonder 'what is that all about?'
Yes, I love sculptures. Iíve seen the pigs in Rundle Mall, & the big bird at the Docklands, while passing in the trams & trains. If the kangaroos were in Brisbane in 3 or 4 years ago, I would have seem them also.
My uncle was a sculptor, & thereís a water fountain of his in a tiny park near Circular Quay, Sydney, NSW, 1 piece was stollen from an art gallery, which had been his house many years before, & sold for scrap metal. His daughters were NOT happy about that, I can tell you.. He also worked in wood, & stone. I think thereís 1 or 2 art the AGNSW in fact.
Every year we go & look at Sculpture by the Sea, at Bondi. I usually take about 110 photos! Itís a very slow walk around for my husband!!
Yes I do. I think they add character to parks and streets, and are a great taking point. I love Native American culture, and one of my favourites is the row of Native American totem poles outside the museum in Victoria, Canada.
P.S; I've seen the pigs in the Rundle Mall while on a cruise, & I've seen the Big Bird at the Melbourne Docklands many times, as we visit Melbourne 4/5 times a year, to visit family. We've also seen the totem poles in Victoria Canada, while on our 1st Alaskan Cruise. i was looking at some last week, at the AGNSW.
