Some more Sculptures:

The back lake where we did everything to eradicate these weeds, emptying the lake, digging and burning. Obviously to no avail!

I apologise not to have included sculptors’ names, but can add them if any one is interested. These few sculptures may give you a better feel for the McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park, Langwarrin, Victoria, Australia. I shall include more photographs as time goes by.

    Oh I love these too except that second one – it looks so out of place in the bush setting! I’m thinking maybe it’s the starkness of the table more than the bright colours. Perhaps it;s just the viewing angle. Excellent curvy bridge, clever man. πŸ˜€

      Christine, that is considered ‘modern’! There are many I don’t appreciate, but then it caters for all tastes!
      Chris will be pleased that you liked his bridge! πŸ™‚

    Yes, thanks to Google, I can answer in the affirmative. From time to time the Royal Botanical Gardens near our town will feature some smaller table sized works in amongst the flower beds.

    Our government considers the arts as a drain on the public purse. Chop chop.

      Yes, your government is conservative like ours, thinking of saving money, not educating the young!
      Glad you have sculptures in the Royal Botanical Gardens though, from time to time. ❀

    A pleasure Maggie. Yes , there are a few done by this sculptor, very clever indeed. Do you have any sculpture parks in Canada? This one was privately set up to start with and still has a fair amount of private funding. Our government isn’t very supportive of the arts.

    I do believe I have encountered that last installation elsewhere in my internet travels… likely from my online Australian rockhound friends.

    What a great place. I do wish we had access to something like that here. Thanks for posting the photos, Barbara.

    It is lovely to return to this park and see any new sculptures. It’s a great place for kids to run around. Glad you liked Chris’ bridge, as he’s not a confident carpenter and it’s still OK!!

    Let me see … we have a rhino, and he is a bee-yooty !; we have a … cockroach ?; we have a really brilliant bridge, a kids’ assembly of coloured things, a wondrous shiny thinggy and one of those balls-hanging-on-differently-arranged-wires that always fascinate me ! Not only that, but some very good-looking little boys, whose parents or grandparents must indubitably be close by. What a great place !!!!!
