Fiddlesticks


This glorious sculpture by Col Henry is called Fiddlesticks, and is installed at Eden Gardens, North Ryde. I love the way the coloured stems reach out to the sky, as if they are growing towards the sun. They look so cheerful and energetic.

From a different angle, though, they appear menacing - a little triffid-like - as if they are reaching to take over the world.

HI Erica,
You've gone all sculptural lately! We're a bit outdoor art nuts here in Grand Rapids with a giant Calder sculpture even figuring on our city logo.
Miss you!
