Every year Cottesloe, Western Australia hosts Sculptures by the Sea and this year was the 17th year. It is one of the largest sculpture exhibitions in the World. We dropped by last week, fortunately we arrived just in time as it was the last day and some of the works had already been taken down. It runs for around two weeks in March.
The sculptures are arranged all along the beach and on the walkway above. Some are truly magnificent and wonderful works of art. My favourite type of gallery – outside!
Below are some of my favourites.
Labyrinth – Andrea Vinkovic
All the above stones are intricately carved but I couldn’t find anything about each stone’s story.
The backs of the stones are also carved, such fascinating designs
The above sculpture is made of bronze
This is made from Wandoo wood a type of eucalyptus and steel
This work is inspired by traditional Korean lucky pouch “Bokjumeoni”. It’s made of sandstone and rope.
This is an event I try to see every year. It’s best to come early in the morning or late afternoon when the sun is not so strong.
