Reply Erm…just call me askimet=6e5458…… Reply Yes, please explain :D Reply Those pesky gremlins…took over the account and changed my name from a perfectly reasonable ‘Cathy’ to the above gobbledegook… Reply Perhaps it’s kismet at work? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kismet ;) Reply It beggars belief really. I can’t think of any rational explanation for a giant green plastic cactus in Perth. A large fake gold nugget perhaps, or a lump of iron ore (or maybe a depiction of a hollowed out ex-mountain), a big ear of wheat (to continue Australia’s obsession with the ‘big [insert object here] ‘ would work, or a giant Akurbra, but cactus – I don’t get it. Reply Perhaps giant kangaroo paw was too hard to sculpt from plastic? :D Oh we shouldn’t laugh. The other sculptures in the city are pretty cool. Perhaps there’s a curatorial reason for this cactus piece? Reply Oh goodie!! I’ll know when I’m there then… ;) Reply It’ll make your jaw drop, i promise. You’ll never have seen anything so…. er, lifelike ;) Reply Ha! Ok, so perhaps they are not appropriate but I have to go against popular opinion here and tell you I love em! Reply *groan* Niki! On the bright side, the City of Perth (and the artist whose work this is) will be most gratified :) Reply Tee hee, actually I do have relations in Perth, cattle farmers, I must ask them what they think, although I can imagine their response already…. Ooh please do. I’m keen to hear what they say, if they’ve been in to the city recently Leave a comment Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
