AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

She doesn't look terribly happy - I wonder what she is thinking. A remarkable sculpture.

Rebecca said...

Wow, that is well done.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The picture makes me want to know more about her.

Ralph said...

This look is gripping, we gan only guess of mood or reason: Angry? Pensive? Deep in thought? The artist here lets us dwell and imagine - the working of art in our minds. Neat!

Genie said...

What an amazing sculpture. You captured her perfectly. Great work. Genie
