Sculpture by the Sea 2009

Today we went to Cottesloe to see the annual Sculpture by the Sea. Some stunning work to see, a beautiful day and what a fantastic setting. Apologies for not knowing the artist names, this is only a tiny selection of some of my favourites. The emus above are made of recycled car tyres and the shipping container behind them is part of another piece. Before having a walk around the beach, we had a lovely lunch at the Cottesloe Beach Hotel Cafe.

The door to the beach hut was one of a series, probably one of the few pieces that related to textiles as it was 'stitched'. The figure in the piece below was made from chicken wire, my husband's favourite. I think the exhibition is on for another week and a half, well worth a look.
