12/3/2014 Sculptures by the Sea
Staged on the beautiful Cottesloe Beach, Western Australia. The exhibition is featured from the sea wall all the way along the sand towards North Cottesloe and on the surrounding grassed areas creating a beautiful sculpture park.
You can see a few of the other sculptures in the background. My favourite is at the end of the rock wall (called a Groyne!), you can just see a bicycle riding up an inclined plank.
This sculpture is called “There’s many a slip ‘twixt the cup and the lip”! As soon as I saw this I said to Cheryl, “That looks like me this last year!” What this cyclist is going to do when she/he reaches the top, who knows, but I am happy to report that my load is getting lighter, the future is looking better, and things are improving.
It’s hard not to be happy in this environment, glorious sunshine and perfect beaches.
This is how it makes me feel.
Otherwise known as the trusty old wine cask.
This amazing sculpture won the competition. It is made up entirely of bottle tops that have had four holes made in them, with cable ties linking them all together, looked something like a massive giant squid. It must have taken hundred of man hours to make, simply amazing!
Notice the bulk carriers in the background waiting to sail into Fremantle Port to load or unload.
