Waterloo, sculpture

This sculpture is located in a small reserve along Powell Street, in the inner city suburb of Waterloo. The suburb was developed with small businesses in light industry in the late nineteenth century and remained industrial throughout the twentieth century. Luke Muras and Company, a blacksmithing and engineering firm, built a factory on this site in 1915. The building was demolished in 2001 to build a residential development called Mondrian Apartments and the sculpture was created to commemorate it.


  1. Interesting sculptures on Powell Street. This comment is from Powell River. - Margy

    1. Great to see how you've connected with it, Margy. :)

  2. Neat sculpture. Thanks for sharing about its background and history, too!

  3. So many of the photos I've seen of sculptures in Sydney and Australia in general feature simple lines and call for imagination to dredge up a tale.

  4. Cool sculpture! It looks like birds definitely made by blacksmiths.
