Sculptural Garden

IMG_7120-1The maroochy bushland botanical gardens has a wonderful sculptural garden, with many works my contemporary international sculptors, all beautiful situated in natural setting.


This work, “the Passage”, by Jean_Paul Chablais is very impressive, made in Sandstone and tallow wood, from a tree that was felled to make room for the carpark. Unfortunately after its commissioning it developed a serious flaw and cracked. Rather than try to repair it the artist wanted the parts used separately, the small pool below the broken piece, shown below, now attract wonderful birds.
