Sculpture by the Sea

I visited one of Sydney's landmark events on Saturday - Bondi's Sculpture by the Sea - and as always was impressed by many of the artists' ingenuity, skill and talent. In its 13th year, the outdoor exhibition along the coastal board walk features work by artists from, not just Australia, but around the world. It is on for another week, till the 15th, so there is still time to see it. Here are some of my favourites.
A man above by Philippe Moreau. Or, a man searching for something ...?
The shoppers by Chinese artist Jie Qian. "In a commercial world full of temptation, will one gain salvation through material satisfaction or be lost in a life of luxury?"
Or just plain lost?

Chaos and order by Barbara Licha where "the contemporary individual is surrounded by the magnitude of everyday emotions." Well, I can relate to that!

To be or not to be by Danish artist Keld Moseholm.
That is the question.
Rat Race by Marguerite Derricourt in which rats are "caught up in the treadmill of life...and are making a brave attempt to escape." Good luck to them, I say!

Sanctuary by Serena Horton where a nest is "a place of new life, comfort, security and potential." Aah...
