In Sydney, it's often said that property developers rule. This sculpture is located in one of the most controversial development sites in central Sydney in recent years - World Square. For many years it was a huge ugly hole in the ground.
This sculpture is called "The Challenge". The attached plaque says:
"The bull, a mythological beast, is the embodiment of spirituality and symbolises the qualities of strength, endurance and tenacity necessary in meeting the many challenges encountered in achieving success.
OSW Properties, the developer of this site, admires these qualities and applies them in setting it's [sic] own goals in the development industry."
Maybe its first goal should be to learn to use its correctly on public plaques. Own goal, OSW Properties, despite the bravado.
