Conversation with a Gosnells local watching while I took my shots:
She: 'Are you a tourist?'
I had to give that one a bit of consideration before replying 'No, I live on the other side of the river.. it's a super sculpture don't you think?'
Her reply 'Nah!'
Well I beg to differ :) While on our expedition to 'the other side' of the river last week we stopped in the suburb of Gosnells to take a few shots of a sculpture I'd heard about by Perth based sculptor Andrew Kay, you can see more of his fabulous works here, including two more pieces in the same suburb that I wish I'd known about before I went because it'll be a while before I go back :) Titled 'Nature Returns to Gosnells' the bronze sculpture depicts a possum holding open a manhole cover emblazoned with the City of Gosnells crest allowing 'a variety of native animals using man-made subterranean channels to access the urban environment from their homes along the banks of the Canning river'. At first I thought the leaves caught in the sculpture were a bit messy, then I thought well that's nature for you.. a bit messy :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..
