Sculpture by the Sea is on at Cottesloe Beach, Perth, Western Australia until 20 March 2016. We have been twice to see this amazing collection of sculptures displayed against the sparkling blue backdrop of the Indian Ocean.
Held every March, this year’s sculptures are exciting to see as always. One of our favourites is “Book Cave” by Juliet Lea. The artist collected discarded books from libraries in the Fremantle area where she lives, to create this work which is based on her love of reading on the beach.
Small children are very attracted to the inside of the cave, while adults look around the outside for a book or author that they know. We noticed books by Colleen McCullough, Oscar Wilde and Tom Keneally (who will be the subject of our next post).
