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)

weights assume eccentric shapes
a symbol of life

É mesmo excêntrico...o gesto é fácil de distinguir, difícil compreender o simbolo sobre suas costas. Um abraço!

Fascinating sculpture. So he has his head in the ground. If he sits up would his head be in the clouds? Either way the artist has a funny view of humanity.
