on the way back from visiting my son Matt at Queanbeyan we took a
little detour to visit the tiny town of Collector population four
hundred and something,i adore these little towns steeped in history with
their old pubs and churches.Besides what collector could resist a town
named Collector. As soon as we arrived we were startled by this unusual
and beautiful sculpture,I rather think of it as a folly myself but it
certainly was mysterious and magical.It has a medieval feel to it and
standing there you see hands and a reclining figure are sculpted into
the wall. Apparently there's a demolition order out for it that has been an ongoing fight since 1997 when the sculpture was built as a testament to the artists fathers life
It is made of concrete and chicken wire and i cant ,help feeling its a shame that everyone wants everything all neat and
tidy and approved.i doubt Stonehenge would meet council approval these
days, I'm glad i saw it im glad i detoured off to the road less traveled.It was a little discovery !
is a tiny town and i am thinking that many collectors live there too.
Old houses and two churches a pub of course this is Australia.we are talking about. i love these little country towns,,
