Darling Harbour, Dance of Love

"Dance of Love" is a 1.6 metre bronze sculpture created by Larissa Smagarinsky in 1987. It is a bit of a risque sculpture for such a public place, on the lawn outside the Exhibition Centre at Darling Harbour.

  3. It does seem risque for such a public setting-does the public object to it on a regular basis? I don't find it objectionable, but I know many would and would put pressure on for it to be removed.

    1. I can't recall there ever being any controversy about it which surprises me a bit. It's location is on a path less travelled which may explain that and why I've only noticed it recently.

  4. No skinny legs on this maiden. Her head is so twisted back, it looks uncomfortable.

  7. No subtle suggestions in this sculpture. Just suggestive erotics with little imagination required. Quite confronting in a public place.
