Sculpture by the Sea

On Wednesday we went to Sculpture by the Sea – a glorious temporary sculpture trail consisting of 107 sculptures sited between Bondi Beach and Tamarama Beach.

The event takes place every year – this is its 19th incarnation and we spent several hours meandering along the trail and taking lots of pictures of the very varied sculptures against their magnificent backdrop.

I won’t post all 107 of them here, but here are a few of my favourites:

This was about coexistence and harmonious advancement among people but reminded both of us of a stag.

The event is on until 8th November and the website is: http://sculpturebythesea.com/. If you’re in Sydney it’s well worth a visit.
