WHALE POD SCULPTURE ADVENTURE BAY

This lyrical sculpture is a three dimensional globe of the world. Inside the globe is placed a sculpture within a sculpture. look closely & you will see floating within the globe a majestic whale with her calf.

This sculpture is situated on South Bruny Island in Adventure Bay. Whale pods regularly visit Adventure Bay where they are very much admired & beloved by the local community.

A significant backdrop to this sculpture is Penguin Island which was home once to one of Tasmania's shore based whaling stations during the 1820's & 1830's.

This remarkable Bruny Island landmark is an initiative of the Bruny Island Art Adventure society. The work was conceived by the local community & skillfully brought to full fruition by well known Tasmanian sculptor Matt Carney.
