Late afternoon. A sky swirling with grey clouds. Bright sun occasionally glaring down. A blue bay stretching across to the graceful shoulder of mountain. The white wake of launches returning to harbour. The warm air of early autumn. A sloping hillside, green grass drying to straw. A few people wandering around, mostly with cameras.
And scattered across the grass a pack of two-dimensional dogs of many breeds, a large white rhinoceros, figures in a range of human shapes, a large metallic shark, a curvaceous trout, a small school of metallic fish, a bed of white flowers rising out of tyre rosettes, a stone carved in spirals and circles, a flight of stairs running away from the oppression of feet, a pole with a corona of red-eyed heads, welded or ceramic birds, and sensuous forms in steel, hardwood, granite, welded metal.
If you have a space with a background of mountain, sea, sky or bush just waiting for a sculpture, take your pick. Prices range between $400 for a small dog to $12,000 for a largish shark.
