The Australian Angel

The Australian Angel was presented to the people of New South Wales by the Swiss Government and the Swiss Australian community at the time of the 2000 Sydney Olympic and Paralympic Games, as part of the Swiss contribution to the cultural exhibition .

It is made of discarded industrial steel objects, for examplecoil springs from a locomotive, spanners, rivets like those used in the harbour bridge.

The artist is Bernard Luginbuhl.
It is found in the park under the northern side of the Harbour Bridge, at Milsons Point.
