The Council, Councillors and the Public Art Panel are all surely joking! Aren’t they?
Commissioning a sculpture 12.0 metres high in the form of a ‘silhouette of the famous lighthouse using thousands of stainless steel birds’ and to be placed on the $5.6 million Bayshore Drive/Ewingsdale Road roundabout. Seriously? $55,000.00. Really?
A ‘representation’ of the actual lighthouse which, if not for this sculpture in the line of sight, can be seen in all of it’s glory ‘in the flesh’ as it were straight ahead and high up at the end of Ewingsdale Road!
I did actually check my diary to see if it was April Fool’s Day. Sadly, not.
