I love these kind of sculptures, relatively simple concept, ie a dude holding a branch with some birds in it and lots of realistic detail – it must take the artist quite some time and skill just to actually fabricate the sculpture, let alone conceive it.
This one is a direct opposite, for me anyway, of the babies crawling up the hill on the other side of Mark’s park they looked great from the back the whole missing face/square hole just left me confused.

I had wanted to get right down low and really get this sculpture against the sky, however after planting a few steps down on that very deceptive looking grass (and sinking into 6 inches of mud) I had to settle for this composition, which was basically sitting on the pavement above the sculpture. It was strange that the curators chose to place it here, i think it could have really benefited from a more elevated viewing position – note +Sculptures By The Sea if you need some advice just let me know 😉 😉 . Thanks to Mickyg for the use of the spin and the stencils, really cool light painting tools. I can only take credit for the light on the grass (i mean mud) and the sculpture.

  1. Will do, better have a few practice go's first though. You got any spots you've been keen on lately? I wouldn't mind trying a fire spin in the Luna Park mouth 😉 how you reckon that would go down?
