Sculpture By The Sea - body beautiful

All along the coast walk where the sculptures are displayed, there are fitness stations, each designed for a particular exercise. These hands have been added to many of them.
Artist Keith Chidzey says: "These sculptures are a response to the often inappropriate Anglo-European intervention on the land, and our obsessions with the fitness industry."


  1. A beautiful hand. Love the patina.

  2. Agree with Jilly, this IS a most beautiful hand. Interesting comment about the heavy hand on the land...

    I laughed at your Peter Garrett comment on yesterday's sculpture...

  3. Sally, yes it does remind me of your hand - I'd forgotten it actually - one modern and one old.
