Museum of Sydney, Tides Turn

"Tides Turn" is a sculpture created by Peter Collins, currently located in the forecourt of the Museum of Sydney. It depicts a surging wave and is constructed from Eucalyptus sticks and steel mesh. It is part of "Surf City", an exhibition currently at the museum that shows how the surfing culture and waxheads at beaches have influenced Sydney. This sculpture was originally displayed at the "Sculpture by the Sea" exhibition in 2010 at Bondi Beach.

  5. Now that is a sculpture and a building I genuinely like. A wonderful juxtaposition, somebody did right here.

    I am not too fond of the church in the previous post, but it's nevertheless an excellent photo.
    I wish we had a sky like yours just occasionally.

  9. Interesting! The artist must have spent a lot of time studying waves in order to portray the flow of the water with sticks and steel!!!
