Find a subject and work into it a bit more – get lost in the details. This is a fantastic sculpture at a local primary school in Darwin. It is a giant fish (Barramundi) and is completed with mosaics. I stopped and took some pics of this Giant Barra’ and was captured by the detail.
The Big Barramundi – Wanguri Primary School, Darwin.

The Barramundi is found in Northern Australian waters is highly prized. Virtually each fish is born male and then becomes female some three to four years later!

The Tapestry at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is an outstanding piece of artwork. It measures 7m wide (22ft) and 2m high (6ft6in) and depicts characters from various sporting and concert events held at the MCG. There are nearly 200 figures depicted and are placed in chronological order from the left.
Unique Tapestry of events and players at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
This unique piece was one of the Victorian Tapestry Workshop‘s most ambitious projects and is an absolute treasure. It was great to visit the MCG and spend time viewing the tapestry and picking out various people throughout time. It’s really worth a look.
