gilded cage (Sculpture By The Sea 2009)

Last year my favourite Sculpture By The Sea piece was this one, by Alex Kosmas, and I showed it on my birthday (today!). So having begun that "tradition" last year, here we are this year. (He was born the same year I was).

It was located in this same spot.

Kormas again occupies this gorgeous site on a ledge overlooking the ocean.

This is entitled "gilded cage" and is made from gold leaf, stainless steel, brass and cast bronze. It's 80cm x 90cm x 170cm.

The artist says: "The tree laid out on the board table like an agenda item is an item of pathos, a state reinforced by the cage, which surrounds and unites the world of business with the world of nature."


  1. this sculpture is crazy! but it´s also critic for what we do to animals it makes us think ...interesting post!

  2. Happy birthday Sally!

    Every sculpture by the sea is a gift.
    Thanks for showing them.

  3. Happy birthday, Sal. Have a good one.

    I like the colour of the cage and the colour of the sandstone. They go well together.

  4. Sydney's sculpture showing Sally sat sanctioned, secluded, seaside . . .

    This piece is interesting and a bit frightening. Brings to mind the huge, quite beautiful, grand houses around here.
