The Domain, Barrel Roll

"Barrel Roll" is an art installation by Peter Lundberg created in 2011 and located beside Mrs Macquaries Road at The Domain, just outside the Royal Botanic Gardens. This sculpture was the winner of the major prize at Sculpture by the Sea in Sydney in 2012 and is part of a scheme to display the winners of that competition in the Botanic Gardens or adjoining Domain for ten years before being moved on to other public gardens.


  1. I think it is a good idea to give a more permanent arena for the best of the art installations.

  2. A remarkable sculpture, Jim, and I agree with William Kendall, it does look like it's walking.
    I see by your sidebar it is 24 Celsius in Sydney. It is 0 Celsius here. Winter hasn't fully arrived in southeastern Alberta.

    1. And yesterday was a scorcher with temperatures over 30, Kay. Summer is almost here. :)

  3. Cool installation ... hope they will give it a great location!

  4. I did to know a bout this scheme to display the sculptures...which proves I don't get to the Botanical Gardens often enough. Thanks for sharing Jim.

  5. That is a good idea to display the winners. I can't say this one does much for me.

  6. Wonderful sculpture ~ so textural and creative ~ you do have great sculptures in your country ~

    Wishing you a Happy and Fun Week ~ ^_^
