Like London, Melbourne has a wealth of public art for the visitor and resident to enjoy.
My next trail handily sent me into various atriums (atria?) I should never have found under my own steam.
Not only atria, but also the loos on the 35th floor of the Sofitel Hotel.
Vicki and I followed up with our guided walk, led by Jim, a kindly man in his seventies. I’m starting to find my way around this city and I like it. I like it very much.
Not all the art is great, nor is it to my taste, but some say art can be a great solace at difficult moments in our lives.
I rather agree. A few short months ago this sculpture expresses how many of us rated the chances of both Brexit and Trump’s presidential candidacy.
Though some think solace comes from elsewhere.
Mind you, animals, and even pictures or sculptures of animals are pretty effective too.
