Industrial Fossil

This fearsome critter is made of old steel from various pieces of machinery and is an installation art piece on Kangaroo Point, along the cliff walk.

This is only a small portion of the entire fish skeleton piece.

See roughly where this picture was taken.

    Wow, I missed this one. Do you know if it was done by the same person who does those roos up on George St?

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    This is a clever piece of art - I'd like to see that.
    Nice shot, David!

    Very well spotted -- a keen eye happening here.

    I couldn't immediately see a plaque near it Steve, might have to return for another peek. It's just past the RiverLife place at Kangaroo Point, heading towards Southbank, before you get to the mangrove section.

    I may upload the whole thing later David, it's a very large piece.

    Hard to miss 'riddles, I stands about 1.8 m tall and is about 3 to 4 m long. I'll geotag it so it's easier to find :)

    There is one like this down the end of my street at oxley. The guy who makes them used to live around the corner as well.

    I'll see if i can get down and get a shot of it after work tomorrow.
