This bronze statue of William Bede Dalley, a politician and barrister, stands in Hyde Park. A number of the city's statues have been dressed up and decorated for the Sydney Statues: Project! as part of the Art & About Sydney festival which is running from 23 September to 24 October 2010. Several emerging and established artists, textile artists, fashion and costume designers have been involved to creatively enhance these historical statues. A photo of the statue at other times can be seen here.
